Zekelman is a family of companies — 100% domestic manufacturers — with a legacy dating back to 1877. We’re proud to be the largest independent steel pipe and tube manufacturer in North America and the leading innovator in multi-family housing development.
We didn’t get where we are today without believing in something. It’s these beliefs that set us apart from the rest and guide us as a team.
Our beliefs are the foundation of our business and tie Zekelman's history to its future.
