With locations in Columbus, Indiana, Walbridge, Ohio and Querétaro, Mexico, we are strategically positioned to manufacture steel tubes to meet the needs of our customers. We have been manufacturing Electric Resistant Welded (ERW) tubing since 1977, with many of our key employees being with us since that time.
Our steel tube mill operators have many years of experience that gives them the insight and expertise to solve even the most complex tubing challenges. We are a leader in Advanced High Strength Steel (AHSS) tube production. Our new product development team works with our customers to find solutions in lightweighting and increasing strength.
Our quality assurance program is among the most rigorous in the industry. We take great pride in exceeding our customer’s exacting standards for quality, delivery and technical support. We ensure the quality of our steel tubing with state of the art non-destructive equipment. We conduct destructive testing several times a coil, a rate which exceeds ASTM destructive standards and is more than twice the industry average. Our commitment to quality has earned us ISO 9001:2008, ISO 14001:2004, OHSAS 18001:2007, ISO/TS 16949:2009, and IATF 16949 certifications. We have a robust CAR 8D problem analysis and resolution program along with 5-why analysis to meet our customers’ requirements.
