Raco Steel Company Logo

Our Mission Statement:

"Customer Satisfaction through Precision Excellence"

Our big blue building

At Raco Steel Company, we think the surest way to customer satisfaction is to do what we do best. That's why we dedicate our shop to the highest quality re-squared blanks, leveled sheets, and slit coil at the most competitive pricing in the industry.

About Us

We are a full service steel distribution center located in Markham, Illinois, just 30 minutes south of Chicago.

Since our founding in 1952, we have steadily grown, from one man operating out of his garage to our current 125,000 square foot production and storage facility.

We believe our longevity in the steel industry can be attributed to three things:

  1. Our ability to form long lasting partnerships with our customers.
  2. Our commitment to integrity in all our business transactions.
  3. Our firm belief that your success is our success.

Since the beginning our goal has been to provide our customers with the highest quality steel at the best possible price. In pursuit of this goal, in 2001 Raco Steel Co. became one of the first steel service centers in North America to become ISO 9001 Certified.

We are proud of our record of steady growth and continue to expand our customer base, by providing both new and longstanding customers with steel supplier programs of the greatest total value.
