About Us

About Louisiana SteelLouisiana Steel is one of the leading steel tube manufacturers with history dating back to the 1950's. Originally owned by Valley Steel, this cold drawn production facility (located in Louisiana, MO) manufactured square and rectangular steel products for the energy industry. In the early 1990's, Bud Harold of Lincoln Steel, acquired the facility and positioned the company to be a manufacturer of drill stem products and odd ball-square and rectangular tubing sizes.

In October of 1996, Bob Arsenault purchased the business and renamed it Louisiana Steel, Inc. 
His mission:

"To supply the metals industry with custom and hard to find tubing in a wide range of materials and performance specifications - all while offering the benefits of an honest philosophy, diligent process and a friendly, open environment."

--- Bob Arsenault, Owner

Louisiana Steel is known as the steel manufacturer that provides custom solutions to hard to find tubing applications. Our core products include custom sized round tubing, square/rectangular tubing, and special shaped tubing such as ellipitical, flat sided ovals, and other custom shapes and sizes from 1 piece up to several truckloads.
