JDM Steel Customers And Served Industries

Our customers are a varied group of companies stretching from Pennsylvania to California. They succeed by adding value to steel, so they cannot afford any quality or delivery problems from their steel supplier. That's why they chose JDM.


One longtime JDM Steel customer put it this way:

"We're a big steel user. We could buy from any of the 'majors' I guess, but JDM Steel has served us so well for the past 20 years, why risk it. They jump through hoops for us . . . like same day delivery if we're in a bind. Like when we installed new, more 'finicky' fabrication equipment that required flatter steel. The JDM team delivered and solved the problem. They're one heckuva steel supplier."

What Other Customers Have To Say . . .

Midwest Metals Inc

"We've been buying plate from JDM for 15 years. Flexibility is what makes them different. They work with us to solve problems that are not even of their making and go beyond what they normally carry to get us material we need."

–  Gene Pierce, President of Midwest Metals, Inc. / Davenport, Iowa

First process Steel

"JDM Steel gives us two day turnaround when others give us 10 days. That's a crucial difference, because if the steel's late we don't work. JDM keeps us running and gives us a competitive price. JDM's the best steel supplier I have."

–  Steve Roberts, Purchasing Mgr. of First Process Steel / Tulsa, Oklahoma

Quick Tanks

"JDM is always on time. They deliver to our request. If we need a half truckload mix of sheets and coils on Monday, come Monday it's there. Their quality is great - one returned coil in four years. I recommend JDM Steel."

–  Tom Stillwell, Purchasing Mgr. of Quick Tanks, Inc. / Kendallville, Indiana

Smith Industries

"JDM people are genuine 'steel people' who haven't lost that personal touch. They analyze what I've bought in the past, project it forward, and make sure they're always stocked for me. And they can deliver on one day notice."

–  Eddie Edge, General Manager of Smith Industries / Midland, Texas

United Laser

"JDM Steel is the top material vendor that we deal with. They are dependable - we've had the same account rep for years - and they are proactive to help us avoid supply issues. And the price is always good too."

–  Vance Hirst, Project Manager for United Laser / South Beloit, Illinois
