The Independent Advantage

Incorporated in November of 1996, North American Steel Alliance is a member owned purchasing cooperative serving the metals distribution industry. Today, NASA is comprised of 120 independently operated steel service centers throughout the United States and Canada with over 400 distribution and processing facilities. Collectively we represent annual revenues exceeding $9 billion dollars.

Our primary business focus is to strategically link our members with the highest quality preferred suppliers, both metal and operational to share innovative ideas and create unique opportunities increasing profitability and ensuring ongoing success. We have developed and facilitated programs with more than 65 preferred suppliers ranging from producing steel mills to operational equipment, general services and consumable goods delivering millions of dollars in dividends and cost savings.

Beginning in 2007 and each year since, the National Cooperative Business Association recognized North American Steel Alliance as one of the top 10 purchasing cooperatives in all of North America, based on total dollars purchased through preferred suppliers.
