Structural Steel Fabrication

Steward Steel is known for flawless, timely structural steel fabrication, even on the most complex projects. 

To ensure your project is of the highest quality, we start with a collaborative approach. From the beginning of each project, we work alongside our customers to understand their specifications, design intent, end user requirements, and any other factors requiring special attention. 

We combine experienced engineers with 3D model drafting software to produce an accurate steel frame model, erection drawings, and shop drawings. We use the latest CNC fabrication machinery and highly skilled fitters/welders/fabricators to ensure the steel is fabricated exactly as required.  We have a wide array of material handling equipment to handle any size, shape, and weight.  All of our tools ensure each member is produced quickly, safely and defect-free. We carefully test and inspect each component produced to ensure it meets or exceeds specifications when it arrives at the job site.
 

Capacity

Located in the middle of the country, Steward Steel’s 25-acre production site with a 200,000 square-foot covered production space conveniently services the United States.  We also have shipped steel to South America, India, and Africa. We can send our quality fabricated steel anywhere in the world. Over 125,000 square feet of our facility is under crane indoors, and we have another 36,000 square feet under crane outdoors. We have a state of the art, 80’ x 420’, temperature controlled paint building that receives clean steel via roller bed after exiting our 8 Wheel Grit Blaster, with two 20 ton bridge cranes with a 35’ hook height and overhead doors for direct indoor loading of 8 semi-trailers. Steward Steel has the room to get steel fabricated and loaded as quickly and efficiently as possible. With our cranes, roller beds, transfer tables, trucks and fleet of forklifts, we can handle it all.  We have the capacity to produce between 12,000 and 24,000+ tons of fabricated structural steel per year, via our capacity to work 2,700+ shop hours per week for contractors, building owners, erectors, and other steel fabricators. 
 
In addition to our production space, we have a 30,000-square foot heated warehouse stocked with thousands of different varieties of steel, aluminum, stainless steel, rebar and other metal products available for next day delivery.  We typically have around 3,000 tons of raw structural steel in our yard as well, to make sure we can meet the tightest of deadlines.
