About Central Steel

Supplying the needs of the Communications Industry

Central Steel Fabricators is a privately held manufacturer specializing in the communications industry for over 40 years. Located in Chicago, Illinois, with over 70,000 square feet under roof, we can service your needs cost effectively. Due to our "central" location and being within a major freight hub, our ability to move your orders throughout the country is excellent. We have a number of National carrier tariffs in place that we pass along our negotiated discounts on to you the customer 90-93 percent. Or, if you prefer we can use the carrier of your choosing.

When working with Central Steel you will be afforded an expanded version of customer service. Beyond the foundation of answering customer's questions and maintaining delivery schedules, we offer a number of time saving processes. We provide order acknowledgements and ship notifications with tracking via e-mail to the buyer of record. We offer every customer "back end access" to our website that allows them to view their POs in real time to get tracking, anticipated ship dates and direct links to carriers for up-to-date information in real time.

We also provide you with our experience in value engineering. If you have a product that you would like us to provide a competitive price on we would do so using the process of "cost avoidance", applying our expertise to aide our customers in getting a product manufactured efficiently. By learning how a part is used and what its critical characteristics are, Central Steel will eliminate built-in excess costs. The result will be reduced cost of your part and an equal or improved performance. Central Steel builds customer confidence by working in your best interest.

We provide the majority EF&I contractors throughout the country who are doing work for end users such as AT&T, Verizon, Comcast, Charter, T-Mobile to name a few. We also provide product to all the major distributors, with some stocking product while others drop ship our material from our warehouse. Data Center build outs have become a popular destination for our product line.

We can cross reference our part numbers to your vendor's numbers to insure that you are receiving the correct product. If you are installing any other equipment or kits not shown on our website, simply supply us with the product part number, a description and we will cross reference the part and quote the product.

We look forward to the opportunity to service the needs of your company. If you have any questions or need any further information, please contact us at your convenience .
