- Company Description
- If you want to have a part in helping hundreds of manufacturers and fabricators build their success, West Central Steel is the place to work. We offer fulfilling careers in production, material handling, machine operators, sales, purchasing, programming quality, accounting and HR with a company that is continually growing. West Central enables manufacturers and fabricators to grow their business by providing carbon steel distribution and parts processing. Since 1949, it has evolved from a steel scrap yard to a steel distributor and parts manufacturer. As a steel distributor, West Central Steel purchases steel from steel mills throughout the country by the truckload, railcar, or barge load. Then sells and distributes the steel to manufacturers and fabricators in the five-state area. Many times, the steel is delivered the next day. Providing steel on a next day basis allows customers to save money with reduced inventory and lower material handling costs. West Central Steel’s parts processing capabilities include saw, torch, plasma and laser cutting for both flat and three-dimensional steel shapes. In addition to cutting, parts can be formed with press brakes capable of bending steel up to 1 inch thick, 30 feet wide. In 2021, West Central Steel added its 10th expansion with another 60,000 square feet of warehouse and parts processing space. The new building will increase its capacity to receive steel via the rail and expand the business with new ways to process steel parts. Investing in the future is integral to the way West Central Steel does business. Whether it is in their people, equipment, or the community. The company is involved in workforce development initiatives to expose high school students to the great jobs in the community while strengthening the manufacturing base in the area.
