  • We use B&C Steel because their standard is quality, performance, and pricing. If I were to describe B&C Steel in one word, it would be solid, just like their buildings.” —Hod Kosman, President and CEO, Platte Valley Companies
  • B&C Steel has been very reliable, competent, and professional every time we have dealt with them. Kelley Bean Company will continue to work with them for our future building needs.”—Robert Kelley, Chairman of Kelley Bean Company
  • Over the years I have put up several competing brands, and I’m here to tell you, that nothing goes together like a B&C Steel structure. When we bid steel erection on a job and we know it’s a B&C Steel building, we typically will bid a lower price because we know what we can count on with B&C Steel.”—Harold Minge, Owner, Minge Construction
  • We purchased our first B&C Steel building in 1980 and have added five more since then. The first building is still in great condition. Their buildings are very durable. They provide excellent service and the people we work with are great.”—Jim Darnell, JD Farms
  • The best part of working with B&C Steel is our salesman. He takes care of everything quickly and bends over backwards to meet our needs. The next best thing is that their steel fits together really good!” —Steve Wessels, ABC Construction
