Our Foundation

Established in 1994, J.B. Steel has grown into one of the largest integrated fabricators and erectors of structural and miscellaneous steel in Arizona. In 2000, J.B. Steel opened a new facility, designed specifically to handle steel fabrication.

Nine years after the opening of the new facility, J.B. Steel implemented state of the art bar coding technology, in order to track material from the time it is received until it is shipped to the job site for erection. This allowed all structural materials to be traceable back to the mill and the originating lot. With a click of the mouse, the status of any item can be determined instantly. Additionally in 2009, J.B. Steel received the quality certification from the American Institute of Steel Construction (AISC) as a Certified Steel Fabricator and Certified Steel Erector.

Continuous Improvement

PythonX Cutting Material
PythonX robotic 3D plasma cutter cutting material.

In 2011, J.B. Steel added a PythonX robotic 3D plasma cutter to improve the quality of processing steel, as well as significantly reducing the cost associated with the process. Shortly after, in 2013, J.B. Steel added a large plasma table with the capability of edge piercing steel up to 3.2” thick using True Hole cutting technology.

J.B. Steel now uses Bluebeam software and computer tablets to ensure that erection crews have instantaneous access to the latest drawings and specifications.
