Steve Conway

Steve worked for the Doe Run Company and related subsidiaries from 1986 until he and his wife, Angelina, purchased QMF in 2013. He rose through the ranks, working as a welding and fabrication leader and as a General Foreman in Doe Run’s Research and Technical Development Operations. He also spent ten years as the maintenance shop’s lead man for the company’s lead acid battery recycling center near Boss, Missouri. Steve is a hands-on leader, and you’re as likely to find him in the shop under a welding helmet as you are in the front office.
