About Us

After more than 90 years in business, O'Neal Steel is now the United States' largest family-owned metals service center supplying carbon and alloy steel, stainless steel and aluminum products for companies nationwide. That's an important distinction because it means the family who started the company, and has guided its growth, continues to be instrumental in its operation today.

It means long-term stability, quick decisions, lasting relationships, and an unwavering commitment to quality, service, and innovation – all the things our customers have relied on us for since 1921.



In 1921, Kirkman O'Neal started a small steel fabricating business called Southern Steel Works (which would later be re-named O’Neal Steel) in Birmingham, Alabama
