A Brief Look at One of The Nation’s Pre-Eminent Steel Producers.
Very few companies can produce the large-scale quantities and quality of steel girders required for the New NY Bridge. High Steel Structures, LLC, a prolific and well-respected manufacturer, is up to the task. The company, based in Lancaster, Pa., prides itself on being one of the most cutting-edge and efficient steel fabricators in the country, with experience in numerous construction projects throughout the nation.
Since the firm’s creation in 1931, High Steel has been at the forefront of steel manufacturing. Pioneers at the firm promoted the welding of steel bridges as opposed to riveting – the common method of the time. As the company grew and took on larger projects, the consensus on bridge construction shifted toward welded girders. Being a champion of this method, High Steel was well prepared to take on increasingly larger projects.
Over the decades, the company continued to expand and gain respect in New York, completing such high profile projects as the new Lake Champlain Bridge. This fast-tracked, high-profile emergency replacement project required complex fabrication and the application of metalized coating to protect its 4,234 tons of steel from the harsh weather common to New York.
High Steel is playing an important role in the New NY Bridge project, as a provider of structural steel. To meet the demands of the project, the firm has invested more than $11.4 million in to facility and equipment improvements. These investments will help the firm grow alongside the local economy.
