Innovative Industrial Designs

General Steel is a leader in the metal manufacturing building business, and provides steel structures for a wide range of industries. You have many variables to consider when running your business: the economy, your competition, and the quality of your product. An investment in a General Steel building offers constants of uncompromising quality, exceptional customer service, and cost savings over more traditional forms of construction.

At General Steel, lengthy, complicated, and costly construction projects are virtually unheard of. In fact, a pre-engineered metal building from General Steel is designed to go up quickly. Your industrial building design will be complete in a fraction of the time it takes for a more conventional structure to be built. That means you can put your construction project behind you faster and get production up and running quicker. This simple fact in addition to the potential overall savings compared to similar sized conventional structures is what allows more and more manufacturers to turn to the convenience and economy of a steel building kit from General Steel.

Our quality structure utilizes only the highest grade materials available. Our buildings are resistant to the elements as well as against pests like termites. The virtual maintenance-free durability of our buildings can save you money on costly repairs and upkeep.

General Steel realizes that the space you need to manufacture your product may be highly specialized. We can offer the perfect solution for even the most complex industrial environments. Our pre-engineered steel buildings provide efficient, flexible, expandable workplaces. A complete range of specifically designed component parts are also available. All buildings are engineered to provide column-free building widths of up to 300 feet, giving you the ultimate freedom in customizing your facility layout, without the costly modification charges associated with other construction methods.

Max Profit by Building Efficiently

Whether you’re expanding a current manufacturing operation or starting a new business, the building you buy will influence construction timelines and the future bottom line of your business. If you buy a less efficient structure, lower quality facility or make a mistake during the design phase, your business may never recover despite the success of the products you make.

  • Flexibility:

    Manufacturing can include anything from clothes to textiles to automobiles and each requires its own uniquely designed space inside as well as on the exterior. With a steel building you control not only the size but also how the new space is used. During the design phase you will work with a team of experts experienced in the layout of manufacturing buildings who can also load the building to utilize block rather than sheeting to gain increased security.

  • Durability:

    General Steel has become synonymous with the highest quality buildings available. Our buildings are engineered specifically to resist the elements of your locale to ensure that the investment you make in your new manufacturing building will last for decades. Not to mention, your steel building will be backed by the industry’s best and most reliable promise, the General’s 50 year structural warranty.

  • Speed:

    Our buildings require no welding and they are prepared at the plant specifically for fast efficient construction. This means that your business will benefit from the expansion you invested in quicker than if you had chosen a more traditional construction process.

  • Economy:

    Adding to the bottom line also requires economical investments made prior to opening a new facility. If you spend too much during the construction phase, your business may struggle to overcome the initial investment for years to come no matter how successful the new venture is. Therefore, when you choose pre-engineered steel, you can be assured that your business is benefitting from the most economical construction method available which will help it succeed during operation.

  • Quality:

    Your building should reflect the quality of the products you manufacture. Like you, General Steel never compromises on the quality of the steel buildings we provide. As your company grows you will know that your manufacturing business is operating out of a first class facility worthy of the products that made your business a success in the first place.
