Our Company

Zekelman Industries’ history of delivering successful solutions reaches back more than 130 years. Decade after decade we have remained committed to our customers and end users. This focus has helped us stay strong for more than a century, and it has helped us grow larger than any other independent pipe and tube manufacturer on the continent.

Zekelman Industries was founded as the John Maneely Company (JMC) in 1877. It started as a distributor of pipe, values and fittings in Philadelphia, PA, and grew into one of the largest independent steel pipe and tube distributors on the East Coast of the U.S. Zekelman Industries and its subsidiaries are the most trusted and comprehensive resources for structural and application-specific tubular steel products and solutions.

Today, Zekelman Industries is the largest independent manufacturer of tubular products in North America. We produce more than 2.5 million tons of tubular products a year through our 15 manufacturing facilities. With a thorough understanding of our customer’s businesses and markets, we enable wholesalers, distributors, fabricators, original equipment manufacturers, contractors and design/build engineering companies throughout North America to manage inventory, reduce supply chain costs, and meet their customer’s needs.


As proud as we are of our heritage, we are dedicated today to delivering customer needs tomorrow. We have the financial strength to continuously improve our facilities. We have the 2,300 people of Zekelman Industries determined to give our customers quality products and exemplary service in the century ahead.

Our continued investments in facilities, systems and people give us the strength to deliver, both in robust markets and in ever-changing times.
