Changes are the norm when you run a bustling business. And finding an employee who stands unwavering among the many changes and challenges over the course of 20 years is like discovering a rare gem.
At Delaware Valley Steel, we have the privilege of celebrating the remarkable journey of Christine Monsatra, an indispensable member of our family since 2003.
From her beginnings as an expert administrative professional to her current role in the accounting department, Christine’s story is one of dedication, growth, and enduring commitment.
A Professional Journey
Christine’s history with Delaware Valley Steel began in 2003 when she joined the team as an administrative professional. Her days were filled with answering phones, meticulously handling data entry, and managing delivery paperwork. These foundational tasks laid the groundwork for her understanding of the inner workings of our company and the intricacies of the steel industry. As she engaged with the various aspects of the business, Christine’s innate talent and diligence began to shine through.
Accepting a New Challenge
Recognizing Christine’s potential, Delaware Valley Steel extended a new opportunity to her – a chance to work in the sales department and directly engage with our valued customers. This transition marked a pivotal moment in her professional journey.
As she continued her immersion into the nuances of the steel industry, this position provided Christine with a unique vantage point. Working in sales allowed her to witness firsthand how our products serve as the backbone of countless projects and ventures.
Mastering the Art of Adaptation
As the steel industry and our company continued to evolve, so did Christine’s role within Delaware Valley Steel.
Two years ago, she eagerly accepted a new challenge and transitioned to the accounting department. In her current role, Christine deftly manages payables, receivables, billing, banking, and financials – crucial components that keep the wheels of our operations turning smoothly. Her adaptability and ability to excel in diverse domains exemplify the spirit of growth that Delaware Valley Steel fosters.
More than an Employee – A Family Member

The laughter and boundless energy of her grandson are a testament to the love that fuels Christine’s unwavering dedication.
In her free time, Christine indulges in pursuits that rejuvenate her spirit. Whether it’s the tranquility of the mountains, the sun, sand and surf of the beach, or the excitement of four-wheeling adventures, Christine’s hobbies proved some of her most cherished moments.
