  • About Us

    We are a San Diego-based reinforcing steel corporation resulting from the alliance of two veteran rebar professionals. Licensed in 2018, CSLB #1042540, the company is growing and going strong. We are also licensed in Utah and, soon, in Arizona. To reach us, call our President, Linda Rosenberg, at (760) 522-7969, or email us at heavymetalsteelco@gmail.com.

    What's different about us? Five big differences:

    1. We are a woman-owned business headed by one of just a handful of women in California who have passed the C-50 rebar licensing exam. Between them, our two senior people have over 50 years of experience in the industry.

    2. We only use teams of experienced rebar workers to do your work. Our people know what they are doing.

    3. We are reliable and honest. We don't make promises we can't keep and we show up on time.

    4. Though based in San Diego, we serve all of Southern California, including LA and the desert, and parts of Central and Northern California. We also serve Utah. Call to see if we can serve your area.

    5. Most importantly, because we use experienced workers and operate efficiently, we work fast and can save you money.
