Our Customer's Story

What's Your Story?

Perhaps you're a small business or independent contractor. You need metal for your next project—that cargo trailer, or the hot new food truck, or maybe just a few gas-station bollards or a BBQ pit.

Your deadlines are tight, margins are thin, and resources scarce. The last thing you need is to spend hours on phone or online searching for the right metal and the right price.

That's where SteelNow steps into the story …

Carbon Sheet, Plate, and Angle

Among the most widely used grades is 1018 . This low carbon steel bar is made up of medium manganese content and has good case hardening properties, fair machinability and is suitable for shafting and for applications that do not require great strength.

Carbon Round, Rectangle, and Square Tube

Versatile and formable, carbon and alloy steels are widely used in nearly every industry including transportation, heavy equipment, industrial equipment and construction.

Stainless Steel Sheet

304 and 316 stainless steel are the most widely used grades, most notably present in industrial applications and kitchen equipment.

These grade are highly heat-resistant and offer good corrosion resistance to many chemical corrodents, as well as industrial atmospheres.

With good formability, 304 stainless steel can be readily welded by all common methods.

Aluminum Sheet

One of the most commonly used grades is 6061 due to the fact it is highly resistant to corrosion, stress, and cracking. This grade also features good formability and weldability.

"Some people order steel just to keep it in stock, but I order steel because I am doing a job right now."

For Shawn, the job he is doing right now tends to vary by the day. A mechanic and electrician by trade, he's also been known to put on his fabricator hat when necessary. Take, for instance, a recent job fabricating a 20-foot high conveyor system for a major industrial shipping and delivery company in Houston.

Regardless of the job, his need is the same: "I need steel. What I don't need is to take time out of my day and wait in line (at local steel shops) while they search for my material and then load it up." Not to mention the fact that Shawn seemingly can't get far from the job site without something going wrong that needs his attention. As he describes it, "I'm constantly trying to pull a rabbit out of my hat just to make a deadline."

With SteelNow there is no bag of tricks—just one call to his rep, Jonathan. "I just tell him what I need and when I need it, and he does the footwork," he adds.

That need could be a 250-foot aluminum angle one day, and 1" x 1" square tubing the next. With that information, Jonathan connects with local suppliers, secures the best price and lead time, and arranges for delivery.

Shawn fits a common profile for local metal buyers in the Houston area: Small businesses and independent contractors building everything from cargo trailers and food trucks to industrial fences and utilities. The deadlines are tight, margins are thin, and resources scarce.

"Even if we don't know the answer, we will find it," says Jonathan. "We are the middle man … you know you need something but may not know where to get it. Rather than spending your time searching, we make sure you have the best options."

Whether it's aluminum, carbon, and stainless in sheet, plate, tube, square, and more, SteelNow makes the connection using: -Knowledge and expertise to find the right material -Power to negotiate the best price and lead time -Time and commitment to provide one-on-one service with customers -No limitations on the size of order

This value can be summed up in two simple words by Shawn: "Time and availability."

I need steel. What I don't need is to take time out of my day and wait in line [at local steel shops] while they search for my material and then load it up. I just tell SteelNow what I need and when I need it, and [they do] the footwork.

We will be on a job and [someone] will ask if the material has been ordered, and all I have to do is look back at my text messages and see that I did indeed place the order.
