Midwest Steel was founded in 1968 and headquartered in Detroit, Michigan. We have offices throughout Michigan, Indiana, Alabama, Florida, and Canada. We have always believed in delivering the best quality steel to our customers, no exceptions. Throughout the steel industry we continue to lead with a new steel management culture - meaning we deliver new ideas for highly successful projects every time.

Here at Midwest Steel, we have a differentiated approach to things. Our Structural Steel Design Assist/Integrated Project Delivery approach to projects provides Project Owners, Project Architects, Structural Engineers, and Construction Managers with alternative constructability design opportunities, and the integration of the Design, Detailing, Fabrication, and Erection early on - all during the Conceptual, Schematic, and Design Development phases of a project. With every project we approach it holistically and connect the elements with a high degree of collaboration and creativity.

The Midwest Steel Team maintains the integrity of the steel design while providing cost saving suggestions that allow for reductions in the project budget and shaving time from the project schedule (time is money!). We work with the Project Team developing cost effective steel strategies early on to avoid project schedule delays and the escalation of the steel prices.


Steel Fabrication in Illinois

Midwest Steel combines manufacturing experience and engineering know-how to produce custom fabrications and tailored steel products, according to customer specifications. We have the management and technical skills to provide holistic designs that balance volatile material prices, fabrication and transportation costs with erection schemes matches to the site conditions. We fabricate and construct the steel for complex facilities, consistently meeting the urgent needs of our customers.

When desired by our customer or the project owner, we have entered into "cooperative design agreements" to meet special environmental needs while minimizing costs. We have even saved the building owner time and money by "double using" the rack -- first as shoring for a heavy concrete roof, and then its intended use for storing the customer's product.
