2018 Metalmaster Holiday Party at Kyoto Japanese Steak House

This year the owners of Metalmaster decided to switch things up and host the annual Holiday party at Kyoto Japanese Steak House & Sushi Bar.  Everybody had a great time and there was lots of food, drinks, and laughter. The hibachi style grill provided a social atmosphere and was very entertaining.  Ryan Kostner, Sno Gem Account Executive and resident tall guy, provided one of the highlights of the event when he caught 12 pieces of broccoli in his mouth.

This year’s raffle was on another level!  Warehouse Operations & Logistics Manager, Dwayne Dethlefsen, won some craft beer and a gift certificate to Brunch Cafe. Hockey fan and Receptionist, Malinda Kruger, along with Director of Product Development, RJ Hoeffleur, both won autographed Blackhawks memorabilia.  The last gift of the raffle was an Xbox One and went to Senior Purchasing & Production Manager, Jeremy Zidek, who apparently made it on the Nice List this year.  Santa even made and appearance and was kind enough to take a few selfies before heading back to the North Pole.

Metalmaster Helps Spread Joy and Cheer Through Angel Tree Program

Every child should feel the joy and cheer of the holiday season.  Metalmaster helped spread that message by participating in the Angel Tree Program again this Christmas!  The program is sponsored by the McHenry County Salvation Army along with NBC5 and Telemundo to assist in providing toys to local, needy children during the holiday season.

Angel tags were put on a tree in the foyer of our building. Each paper angel listed a specific child, their age, gender and “gift wish”.  Any employee, visitor, customer, relative or friend could choose an angel from the tree to sponsor a child.

Last year this program was able to provide gifts to over 1,800 local children and our companies contributed to 75 of those!

This year we were able to provide 90 gifts!

Mount Prospect Ice Arena

The Mount Prospect Ice Arena is becoming a familiar place to Metalmaster Roofmaster since the completion of the newly renovated $10 million dollar Ice Arena in September of 2016.  We worked on this project with contractor Nicholas & Associates, Inc. to provide metal wall panels for the Arena. This state of the art facility includes two full size sheets of ice (200’ x 85’) with seating for 450 at each rink, ten locker rooms, a pro-shop and restaurant.

You can now find a Metalmaster Roofmaster banner hanging in the North Rink of the Arena, and we love how it looks! Check it out below and see it for yourself the next time you visit The Mount Prospect Ice Arena!

Nicholas & Associates, Inc. is a full-service contractor, providing comprehensive General Contracting, Construction Management, and Design/Build services. Take a look at their site to see some of the amazing work they have done.
