Mill Steel Co Mourns Loss of Former CEO & Chairman David Samrick
Mr David Samrick, former CEO and Chairman of Mill Steel Co, peacefully passed away surrounded by his family on May 14, 2021. Mr Samrick's career in the family business began in 1965 at the young age of 19. With his aptitude for leadership and keen business insight, he was promoted to President in 1976, then CEO and Chairman in 1985. Mr Samrick, alongside his fellow partners, led the company in double-digit growth for over five decades until recently transitioning the role of Chairman to his niece and founder Harry Samrick's granddaughter, Ms Pam Heglund.
Under Mr Samrick's direction, with the firm belief that quality and superior service are key, Mill Steel expanded its geographic footprint across the Midwest and Southern United States to service its diverse portfolio of customers. His dedication to the company's associates, business partners and customers earned him the honor of Metal Center News Service Center Executive of the Year in 2014.
Mill Steel plans to celebrate and honor David's life and legacy in the coming weeks with a Memorial event at its headquarters for associates and business partners on Wednesday, June 2, 2021 at 2 pm.
