Arthur F. Maas Sr. founded Maas Hansen Steel Company in 1929. Several years later, his stepson, Charles P. Hansen joined the company.
In 1950, the company changed its name to Maas-Hansen Steel Corporation and moved to its current location in Vernon, California.
In 2015 the company was acquired by Triple-S Steel (www.sss-steel.com) based in Houston, Texas and the division operates under the name Maas-Hansen Steel.
At the Vernon location, Maas-Hansen has approximately 40 employees between the office and the 2 plants. There is approximately 153,000 square feet of warehouse and production space at the two facilities. Production operations typically run 16 hours per day, 5 days per week. Equipment includes 2 levelers, 1 slitter, 1 leveler/slitter/blanking line, 4 shears and 2 company owned trucks.
At the Fontana facility, we have 120,000 square feet of office and production space to house a Braner slitter, a Redbud Blanking/Leveling line and a Cincinnati hand shear. Both the slitting and leveling lines were manufactured to handle light gage, surface critical material. The slitting line can handle coils up to 50,000 pounds. We are currently running 1 shift on each line and have 20 employees between the office and the plant. This facility sits adjacent to another Triple-S Steel company called Intsel Steel West, a seller of carbon structural products.
Maas-Hansen Steel produces sheet or slit coiled carbon steel that can be cold-rolled, hot-rolled, hot-dipped galvanized, electro-galvanized, galvannealed, pickled and oiled, painted or embossed. The company has an unmatched customer service record extending over 80 years.
Maas-Hansen`s success is based on management`s experience in foreseeing and meeting industry and customer requirements. We have an enthusiastic service-oriented staff including production and shipping departments with technical expertise and a commitment to product quality. With this winning combination of factors, Maas-Hansen will continue to provide customized steel products for its many customers well into the future.
