D. B. & S. Steel Corporation was founded in September of 1973 by Jack M. Davis, Charles M. Burk, and Ronald R. Swaggard. The business was originally located in North Rochester, Pennsylvania, a robust steel mill community just West of Pittsburgh.
Jack, Chuck and Ron had great vision. They were very opportunistic. The precision ground tool steel market place was evolving and creating demand for different grades of tool steel in a variety of sizes. They met the challenge of their customers by making the decision to invest in the raw material and finished goods inventory necessary to be the one stop provider of precision ground flat stock for their customers. . In addition, in 1983 the company decided to distribute drill rod as a companion product line to the precision ground flat stock as an accommodation to their customers.
Today, the D. B. & S. Steel Corporation maintains its operations in Beaver Falls, Pennsylvania on roughly seventeen acres of land. Within the approximate 25,000 square feet of production facilities, the business maintains capacity expressed in terms of equipment, personnel and inventory, both raw material and finished goods, to meet the varied needs of it customers. The company stocks over 4,000 discrete sizes and grades of precision ground flat stock. On a daily basis, that means our inventory of finished products exceeds over one half million pieces on premises. While we are one of the four producers of precision ground flat stock in the country, we are the only manufacturer to stock eight different grades of tool steel. We ship our products both nationally and internationally.
