Finishing Department Manager
Steve Schwandt is a third-generation expert at Behrends. Knowledge of the foundry has been passed down from when his grandfather and father worked for the company. Steve has an impressive 25 years of experience at Behrends under his belt. Now the Finishing Department Manager, Steve has become an expert in all the fine details of finishing, from bronze plaques to assembly skills such as tricky sign lighting. He is currently passing down that extensive knowledge to others on the Finishing team, while also working with design, sales, and estimators.
When Steve isn’t working in the shop, he is most often found travelling to Vegas, his favourite destination, or camping, fishing, and spending quality time with his 5-year-old daughter and 3-year-old son.
