Our aim is to make Santa Rita Steel a pleasant place to work and therefore a good experience for our customers as well. We believe in buying American made products whenever possible. Santa Rita Steel also proudly does business with local vendors. We feel that supporting the American economy, especially in these tumultuous times, is of great importance. This policy also results in the consistency and excellent quality of the products we provide.

Commitment to Quality
Santa Rita Steel's staff is committed to quality, consistency and the American job. We also pride ourselves on choosing vendors and products that give us the greenest decisions possible for our industry.

We purchase the largest percentage of our steel products from mills that are American owned and operated. These products conform to the standards set in place by the American Society for Testing and Materials (ASTM). By doing this we are able to support American jobs and we find that this also results in the best quality and consistency available.

Due to the rigid standards set in place by the Environmental Protection Agency, American steel mills produce their products with less impact to the global environment than do many foreign mills. Embedded energy is also less due to the shorter distances that need to be traveled to get the products to the marketplace.

Steel is the most recycled material on the planet. Most of Santa Rita Steel scrap is donated to the local high school welding shops, the balance is recycled.

We are proud that about eighty five percent of what Santa Rita Steel sells falls into the above condition. Unfortunately, we are not able to obtain all the products we sell in the U.S., usually because they are not available or because economic conditions dictate foreign sourcing.
