People are often surprised we are still a family run business. We consistently operator and perform on a much larger scale than many would think. A close, well experienced team is our secret.
If we go back for a moment to the simpler times of 1978. This was before computers and smartphones. Before tablets and PCs. A time when a man’s word was his bond. Thirty eight years ago.
That’s when Edmonton’s McNish Steel was born.
Back then communities were smaller. Not just here, but everywhere. Neighbourhoods were close. People greeted each other. We had quality time at home. And when it was time to work, we worked hard and delivered service to talk about.
At the time it wasn’t easy to become the most respected manufacturer in Edmonton. We started small and worked hard. A father-son team with a future-focused vision and an entrepreneur’s heart. When William and Wallace McNish opened the doors to our first customer, it was with smiles on their faces and a fire in their souls.
Over the years McNish Steel made a name for itself locally and Canada wide. We weren’t just another rebar shop. We were the fabrication company you depended on. You trusted us, and built with us, and on more than one occasion you even dined with us.
In 2001 when William passed away his daughter, Betty McNish, picked up operations and helped drive us forward to ensure the family name continued and thrived.
Today Betty’s children, Marion and Jamie, bring a 3rd generation to carry on the legacy. Together we’ve raised what started as a small shop, into Alberta leading rebar manufacturing company, highly capable and very experienced.
Three decades later and still standing strong McNish Steel continues to improve its technologies, products, and services. We still stand behind our name and honor the integrity you’ve come to know and trust.
We are a reliable, faithful, family-friendly service. Quality products done right. An unwavering dedication to improvement while always guarding our values. Three decades of experience. That’s why Edmonton continues to choose us after nearly forty years.
