Who We Are
Steeltech Building Products, Inc., founded in 1965, was originally named Guy Jodice Building Products, Inc. and acted as a manufacturer's representative for various steel construction products. The name was changed to Steeltech Building Products, Inc. in May 1970, to reflect the change in the company's role to a distributor and specialty contractor of steel products.
By 1980 Steeltech had evolved into a company with four separate operating divisions: Structural Steel Fabrication and Erection; Doors and Hardware; Toilet Partitions and Accessories; and Architectural and Industrial Metal Siding. The year 1997 saw the addition of pre-engineered building to its siding and roofing division.
The company was originally housed in a 3,000 square foot rented facility in Bloomfield, CT before moving to a new 10,000 square foot structure in Bloomfield in 1970. That building was expanded by seven separate additions over the years and by 1990 had grown to a 35,000 square foot facility.
In November 1997 Steeltech relocated to a new, modern, 38,000 square foot, state-of-the-art office and manufacturing facility in South Windsor, CT and the addition of an automated steel fabrication beam line. We currently employ 50 workers and report $15 million in revenues.
1999 marked Steeltech's entry into the world of e-commerce with the formation of section10net.com Inc., which became econstructionspecialties.com.
