About Bradford Steel
Steve and Kathy Bradford founded Bradford Steel in 1977 in a small shop in Ivanhoe, California with the fabrication of walnut trailers and general farm equipment repair. In 1984 Steve acquired his C-51 license, and began eagerly fabricating structural steel for contractors in the community. 15 years later, growing demand and request from customers resulted in the addition of pre-engineered metal buildings.

“As the project manager for our company, I worked very closely with the principles at Bradford Steel prior to and during our recently completed building expansion project. On all levels, personnel from Bradford Steel were professional, knowledgeable and accommodating to our unique circumstances. We have had zero warranty issues as all personnel involved completed and tested all systems prior to our move-in. For this construction project, we needed to maintain full production capacity during all phases of the construction. This meant starting and finishing in as short a time as possible with as little interruption as possible. One of the key factors that lead us to award this project to Bradford Steel was their ability to design, engineer, and fabricate the building’s components in house, and for us, locally. This meant that timelines could be met, and in many cases accelerated, and as was our experience, shaved approximately 60 days of the construction schedule. I am confident in stating that Bradford Steel met all of our needs during this project. If we have a building project come up in the future, I will give Bradford Steel a call. If asked to recommend a builder, I will not hesitate to advocate Bradford Steel as a great company to work with.”
"Bradford Steel was extremely qualified to complete our project, which was not a typical project. It required careful coordination with existing structures and to partially support an existing building. No warranty or remediation was required, and the owner was extremely satisfied with Bradford Steel’s work. Bradford Steel is a company I trust and do refer to many of our clients and peers.”
“I am very happy with our Bradford Steel building. Before drawing up plans, Jared took time to evaluate how our business operates so he could design a building in a way that would help us function most efficiently. He gave us several options, and helped us find a way to get the most building for our budget. The buildings were completed within the projected timeline with excellent craftsmanship. We get many compliments on our buildings, for both appearance and quality. Choosing Bradford Steel is one of the best decisions I made when designing our new facility.”
