Metro Steel USA is adding 20 Welders and Robotic Welder For Heavy Fabrication Demand

Press Release | Florida

The demand for heavy fabrication, structural steel, and original equipment manufacturing has Metro Steel USA growing their team by 20 new welders.

Additionally, a New Lincoln Robotic welder, that a more tech savvy welding crew member directs, will be operating in the 200,000 square ft facility. The robotic welder is capable of 24/7 work, along with the other machines for laser, plasma, forming, rolling and CNC machining. Automated welding helps alleviate certain tasks that will allow the welding team to focus on other heavy fabrication projects.

“Heavy fabrication projects and structural steel distribution, along with the original equipment manufacturing expansion, has given us the chance to add more welding talent to our company. We project continued growth as demand is continuing to increase,” said Adam Nesmith, Vice President of Metro Steel USA. “We are centrally located to the coasts of Florida and considering the challenges facing the trucking industry today, having our own fleet of trucks gives us a tremendous advantage.”

The state-of-the-art heavy fabrication shop has technological capabilities that allow the largest companies in the U.S. to use Metro Steel USA for a wide range of metal projects. The vast size of Metro Steel USA allows for very large, heavy fabrication.

Continuing a Legacy of U.S. Produced Steel

Three generations down the line, Bryan Shepherd has continued Metro Steel’s values of fast distribution and “value added” processing. The family-owned company has been servicing the state of Florida for decades. They are not just a steel supply company, they’re an American metal center that can do anything from processing to fabricating carbon steel, stainless steel, and aluminum.

Processes

Many of Metro Steel’s processes use top of the line equipment to speed up production. Specifically, the laser processing is done with a laser cutting machine that cuts production time in half. Another manufacturer favorite is CNC Machining processing. The high quality equipment allows for precision and speed for very specific jobs.

All of the equipment they use are precise and reliable, allowing for them to charge low rates for their services. Customer service is a priority at Metro Steel, and if you can’t find a piece you need, they will do everything they can to find it through their team. For added convenience, Metro Steel has a full-service delivery system throughout the Florida area.

Customer service and quality processing are what make Metro Steel USA the go-to for your metal processing needs.

Metro Steel & Pipe Supply Opens In Leesburg, FL

In 1974 Charles “Bee” II’s son, Charles “Chuck” Shepherd established Metro Steel and Pipe Supply, Inc. on the property adjacent to Leesburg Welding, where he built a 35,000 sf building. His steel warehouse and distribution business serviced numerous industries across central Florida. In addition to selling raw materials, Chuck purchased equipment to cut, shear, bend and roll steel products according to customer needs. This was the beginning of the “value-added” processing.
