Years at Drake-Williams Steel, Inc.: 30. Hometown: Council Bluffs, Iowa. Secret talent: Mr. Fix It. You might wonder, who is this Mr. Fix It? It’s our "always busy" guy, Dan Heffernan in Rebar Sales. If you have any questions about Rebar, Dan is the Man to go to. He started his career here as a helper with the rebar machines, then worked in the shop as a machine operator, moved up to rebar foreman for 15 years & now holds the position as Rebar Sales. 

Dan’s 1st day on the job was not as smooth sailing as he would’ve liked. He was helping in the shop & accidentally stepped on the peddle of a machine, the blade was coming down & he almost cut off his foreman’s hand. Close call. Whew! The 2nd day on the job he was told to only sweep and to not go near any machines. And that’s what he did, but boy has he moved up since then! smile emoticon

Outside of work Dan spends his time remodeling his daughter’s basement, watching the Kansas City Chiefs & listening to Rock ’n Roll. He has been married to his wife, Kris for 30 years, has 2 children & 1 granddaughter. Dan comes from a large family with 6 sisters & 1 brother, where Dan is the youngest in the family. 

Let’s give Dan a big shout out for his awesome 30 years of loyalty here at Drake-Williams Steel!
