craftsmanship at a fair price, always

At Newman Steel, Inc. we understands the importance in providing a value while maintaining quality so that our clients know they are always getting the best work for the best price. Backed with over 40 years' trade experience, we combine the highest standards of craftsmanship with modern technology to guarantee a superior product for the most fair price.


Looking back at my 40 years in the trades, I am thankful for my many experiences. At times it was an education achieved the hard way; other times it couldn't have been better!


Business, and the construction trades especially, can often be cut-throat and adversarial. Many are in it strictly for the dollar, and nothing else. While I believe that being profitable is mandatory, I have made it a part of my business model to steer away from the adversarial type who are only in it for the money.

I believe we are all a team. That we each have a position to play. And that everyone--from the general contractor to our office staff to our craftsmen in the shop and field--should be treated with honor and respect. It has been my dream that these business values I have established not be lost, but be built upon should it come time for the next generation to join our team.

It seems, after four decades and dozens of life-long friendships formed with like-minded clients, that time has come here at Newman Steel. As the transition plays out and the youth movement comes in with my son, Aaron Newman, I feel very excited for the future. Aaron's natural work ethic combined with his education are invaluable and refreshing. His maintaining and building of relationships with other team-minded builders is really what it is all about. I am proud to say that the future at Newman Steel, Inc. looks great, and I can't wait to see how business continues with our friends, both old and new.
