Ogeechee Steel has been operating as a minority owned business since 1984. The original owners included Janet Johnson, Buddy Johnson and Tommy Garrett. We started with eight employees and now six of those still remain a vital part of our structure. OSI’s Fabrication Operations have remained AISC certified – Complex Structures – since 1994. Ogeechee Steel was certified as an AISC Certified Steel Erector for our Erection Operations in 1998. In 2002, we became an AISC Certified Advanced Steel Erector (CASE). We currently employ 73 individuals with more than 50% having from 15 to 30 years experience in the steel business.
Ogeechee Steel has a 50′-0 x 300′-0 Covered Area to include 125′-0 of Crane Rail. The back of the shop is also used to fabricate with over 20 benches set up to facilitate fabrication and welding. The Maintenance Shop is located at the rear of the fabrication shop with a covered addition to provide more lay down area. We have over two acres of inventory space behind our facilities. Our shop currently produces approximately 150 – 200 tons per week.
We fabricate and erect our projects with forces on the payroll of Ogeechee Steel, Inc. This gives the General Contractor the ease of coordination without having to handle disputes between the fabricator and erector – OSI is both. This is one of the reasons why you will notice, in our project section, that we are constantly performing repeat work for our Contractors.
Projects of various sizes and specifications are manufactured, including: packaging platforms for Frito Lay including sandblasting and special painting; FAA Control Towers; Industrial Warehouses; Schools; Sport Stadiums, and Multi-Story Office Buildings. We pride ourselves in seeking those projects with intricate detail, including: Rolled Verendeel Facades, Rolled Domes with Gable Trusses, Rolled/Skewed Canopies, etc. We estimate projects ranging from 20 tons to 3500 tons of structural steel. Quotations often include grating, stairs/rails and other miscellaneous items.
In quoting your projects, “Schedule” is of great importance. A close working relationship between Ogeechee Steel and your company is developed, concentrating on the best coordination of all subcontracting trades to ensure that deliveries are timely; as Time Is Money.
