For something as demanding as steel processing, your business needs a company that will get all your requirements. At California Steel Services, we will work with you to deliver the materials at your specifications.

When looking for a steel service distributor, it is important to look for a company that has the technical knowledge, capability, tolerance and the infrastructure to meet your specific requirements.

Fortunately, California Steel Services has been serving its clients from 1983, and it operates from a 6.5-acre facility entailing a 78,000 sq. ft warehouse and just added a new 87,493 square feet warehouse with state-of-the-art equipment.
