Our History

1992

Paul Carling begins setting aside and selling used and surplus steel while working in a metal scrapyard. He has no office, no warehouse, and no employees. But he has a dream.

1993

Carling notices small- to medium-sized construction and fabrication companies had few options for obtaining the specific steel pieces they needed. Carling founds SteelMart to meet their needs.

1996

Carling’s college roommate and closest friend, Brian Satisky, joins Paul at SteelMart. While Paul makes deliveries in a beat-up truck, Brian cuts steel with an old torch and loads customer orders with an even older forklift.

1997

Paul and Brian hire their first employee to work in the yard so they can pursue new business. They have no investors or private equity, but they have an unmatched work ethic and a dream. They begin building a company culture with a laser focus on taking care of employees, customers, and vendors.
