About Us

Gerlinger Steel & Supply Company has served the construction, precious metal, lumber and aggregate mining industries, bridge and highway projects, along with water projects such as Shasta, Trinity, and Whiskeytown since 1929. Gerlinger Steel continues to expand with the demand for metals, fabrication services, industrial hardware and equipment.

Gerlinger Steel in Redding was established in 1929 when Fred Gerlinger Sr., with his son Bert, bought and rebuilt the burned out Foundry & Machine Shop that was in operation from 1906 to the mid 1920's. The Steel and Industrial Supply Division was added by purchasing the remainder of the McCormick Saeltzer "Big Store" inventory that was salvaged when the Store burned in the late 1930's.

Our sales and delivery staff cover territory in the Sacramento and San Joaquin Valleys, as well as the San Francisco Bay areas. We pre-fabricate plate and structural metal to customer specifications and ship to locations throughout the West. Our metal working machinery sales serve customers from Canada to Southern California and east beyond the Rocky Mountains.

The Sacramento location was added in the early 1990's when the company acquired the material fabricating equipment and facility of "Sacramento Pipe Works and Hix Bros. of Stockton". The late 90's to the present have brought the addition of more pre-fab equipment for both plants. This allows us to better serve the Sacramento and San Joaquin Valleys, as well as other West Coast locations, saving time and costs for our Customers. With the crossroads location of the Woodland – formerly Sacramento – plant on I-80 and I-5, shipment of product is readily available.

Since the early 1980s inventories and machinery have also been adjusted to better supply the aggregate, industrial, agricultural, government, and other local area municipal needs. Large capacity shears, brakes, rolls, flame cutting/high definition plasma tables, as well as an Amada plate laser have been acquired.

In March of 2013, both the Sacramento and Nevada City locations were replaced and consolidated in to a Woodland, CA facility, the largest of any facility Gerlinger Steel has occupied to date. This has allowed Gerlinger’s to expand their services even further, running increased deliveries and offering more products than ever before.

Gerlinger Steel & Supply Company is still family operated and strives to serve customer needs better, now and in the future.
