Business Model

Bell Steel’s business model is based on a one stop shop steel fabricator and erector. This means Bell Steel is active in all aspects of a project. Here are key points the company is managed by:


We subcontract our detailing services only to companies who meet our rigorous, quality standards, including the use of Building Information Modeling (BIM). These companies work diligently with us to insure we receive the drawings accurately and on-time. Because we have cultivated strong relationships with several detailing companies, we provide the same quality product regardless of the size or duration of the project. In addition, we subcontract engineering services on design-build projects to licensed and certified engineering firms.


We own a leading structural steel estimating program that can give our customer any form of information they want for their project. We also do all of our estimating in house.


We are in control of all aspects of material procurement. With our 30+ years of experience and the relationships with vendors we have built over the years, we have the ability to procure any material or service needed. This can range from all domestic steel to complicated material rolling with tight tolerances.


We are located on a 15-acre facility that includes over 100,000 sq. feet of fabrication space. We consistently invest in new and upgrade existing machinery and equipment to maintain a state-of-the-art facility designed to efficiently provide our customers with the highest quality product.


Hybrid paint systems in conjunction with our shotblast machine allows us to be the only structural fabricator to offer this ability in house. We also have a great relationship with AZZ Galvanizing to provide galvanizing if the project requires it.


We have the ability to provide all material transportation. We have a fleet of vehicles ranging from a standard pick up all the way up to a semi with equipment trailers.


We utilize both in-house, as well as highly qualified subcontract field crews to insure timely and safe field installation. Field crews adhere to strict safety compliance measures as required by company policies and governmental regulations. Our crews, whether in-house or subcontract, conduct regularly scheduled safety meetings to review safety issues and keep good safety practices top of mind.


Safety has been and will remain a cornerstone of our project focus. We have a full-time safety director ensuring we are providing a safe environment both in house and in the field and are always looking for ways to improve our safety process. We have a commitment to our team and yours to be proactive.


Being an AISC certified shop makes us a leading force in quality. AISC Certification Programs set the quality standard for the structural steel industry and are the most recognized national quality certification program for the industry. AISC’s goal is to build quality structures from the start by focusing on error prevention rather than error correction. We undergo annual audits to ensure we are following all protocols.
