About Us

Steel Supply Company Building


The Steel Supply was originally founded as a specialty warehouse to locally supply ground and polished precision shafting. Today we are an international distributor operating two locations. Our warehouse, located in Rolling Meadows, IL., stocks 4,000 individual sizes and grades of steel tubing and shafting. Our in-house machine shop produces hydraulic rods, piston rods, and cylinder barrels. We are equipped for most types of general machining.

Our sister company, Precision Chrome Inc., is based out of Fox Lake, IL. They are a complete source of chrome-plated shafting and tubing for the hydraulic industry and fulfills large quantity orders at mill prices.

Our Manufacturing innovations and technical procedures are recognized by registered trademarks such as Electreat 50 TM, #2 Chrome Piston Steel TM, and Hi-Yield TM Precision Shafting.

The Steel Supply Company has been a family-owned business for over 120 years. We operate today with the same philosophies that were put in place years ago. We are customer service driven which means when you call our office you reach a live person who is there to happily accommodate your needs. We have 98% available inventory and 99% Customer Satisfaction rate. We ship same day on all orders received prior to 12:00 p.m. (CST). As a company we strive to be the best and innovate where possible to keep us on the cutting edge of our industry.
