What is now Ulbrich Stainless Steels & Special Metals, Inc. began in 1924 when Fred Ulbrich, Sr. started a scrap metal reselling business at One Dudley Ave. in Wallingford, CT. Fred, Sr. soon began manufacturing cutlery, and during World War II was awarded the contract to supply stainless steel knives for the U.S. Army’s mess kits. This contract allowed the company to purchase its first rolling mill, which was instrumental in transforming Ulbrich from a utensils-based manufacturer to a custom stainless steel strip operation in the post-World War II era.
