Deansteel’s commitment to quality, customer service, and “small business-style” relationships has moved this family owned business forward for over has a century and these commitments will remain a cornerstone as Deansteel moves into the next century.
Deansteel Manufacturing Company first ventured into the sheet metal business
in 1856 when Joseph
Dean, the great-great uncle of Company Owner and CEO John Dean, learned the
craft of sheet metal working as an Indentured Apprentice issued by the
Crown of England. After completing his apprenticeship, Joseph and his
wife immigrated to Texas and set up shop in San Antonio. His primary
business consisted of fabricating common steel household items like pots
and pans, rain gutters, and stove pipes to name a few. The Dean name
quickly earned a reputation throughout South Central Texas as a mark
of quality workmanship.
In the past 55 years, Deansteel has matured from a small sheet metal
shop to a production facility that encompasses more than 138,000 square
feet, and is equipped with some of the most modern fabricating equipment
available. Deansteel maintains a stock inventory of 4,000 doors and more
than 20,000 frame components to supply to our distributors.
