Why Buy from a NASA

Members of the North American Steel Alliance are selected from independently operated service centers with outstanding reputations and sound financials. As customer-driven organizations, our members have survived and prospered in a very competitive market and through every business cycle. Because of the connections established and fostered within the co-op, members realize the strength of independence, the benefit of aggregation, the insight from shared best practices, and the power of a national identity. As a result, when buying from a NASA member, you are working with a company that:

  • Has access to steel at a very competitive price. As a member of NASA, each company, in essence, has the buying strength of a $9 billion company.
  • Is independently operated, with a focus on superior customer service.
  • In some cases is family-owned, by second- and third-generation family members who consider employees and customers extended members of their family.
  • Has access to leading industry best practices through its association with NASA.
