California Steel And Tube was founded in 1951.
Since its modest beginnings as a warehouse over 70 years ago, California Steel and Tube has become known nationally as a top tubing manufacturer in the western United States. After partnering with worldwide steel distributor Kloeckner Metals, California Steel and Tube has magnified its deep tubing expertise with Kloeckner’s global reach.
California Steel and Tube credits its success to the long experience of its team and its dedication to customers. California Steel and Tube’s leadership averages over 30 years with the business and their employees nearly 15. All the while, California Steel and Tube has gone above and beyond the expectations of its customers by anticipating their needs and offering a global size range of higher quality, aesthetic tubes with tight tolerances.
