Learn from Experience

There is simply no substitute for experience. In fact, it’s the key to helping customers solve problems, improve designs and reduce costs. It’s impossible to troubleshoot in a business without knowing the business. Deep experience in steel fabrication, finishing, robotic welding, and laser cutting is why Nelson Steel can be a problem-solving partner—not just a vendor who takes orders.

Since Nelson Steel’s beginnings in 1945, customers have it depended on it for both solutions and service. Helping customers solve problems with innovations like robotic welding and laser cutting technologies explains why Nelson Steel has enjoyed growth and expansion into more and more markets.

Whether it is recognizing that a square tube is a better choice for a product than a round one, refining a design to tighten tolerances or reconfiguring a product to eliminate vibration, fresh thinking and leading-edge capabilities are why Nelson is a name everyone remembers.
