Canada Steel News . . .
The steel industry is not an easy one to navigate. Unprecedented pressure from imports continue to damage domestic steel production and foreign products are no bargain, because of suspect quality and unpredictable lead times. The industry is evolving and the victims in the process will be Canadian jobs. At Canada Steel, we buy the majority of our stock from Canadian mills. We will continue to do so until a foreign source is the only alternative. We will always meet our obligation to serve our valued customers.
Canada Steel has a unique place in the Ontario market. Smaller orders and rapid service separate us from the larger multi-national competitors. A diverse product mix allows us to offer a one stop shopping opportunity to customers from Hamilton to Windsor to Owen Sound. Having hot rolled, cold rolled, aluminum, stainless, and flat rolled in stock in all our locations offers our customers the advantage of not having to stock their steel requirements. We deliver to the entire Southwestern Ontario base daily.

Unfortunately, the US market has not, as yet, responded to a low Canadian dollar. Keeping jobs at home is the message south of the border and their growing economy reflects this sound policy. We are seeing a structural correction, not a repetitive cycle. In Canada, we will need to be patient and efficient if we are to grow this slow economy.
Canada Steel is determined to be your first choice as a steel service centre supplier. Our staff is devoted to your steel needs and we will endeavour to provide domestic steel to assure quality and traceability.
I want to thank you all for your loyalty to Canada Steel. Without you, one of our 5,000 repeat customers, we would not be here. Now it is our job to earn this loyalty.
The families of Canada Steel wish you and yours a prosperous 2016.
