Sanilac Steel, Inc
Sanilac Steel, Inc. was formed in 1967 by James O’Morrow Sr., Alan Loding, Keith Jensen and Paul Jensen. Sanilac Steel bought out Weaver Steel and has remained at its original location of 2487 S Van Dyke Rd, Marlette, MI 48453. In our earlier days we performed a wide variety of steel construction work including steel joists, steel beams and columns. We had even built many small bridges in the area. Today, Sanilac Steel fabricates structural steel for commercial, industrial and municipal building projects all over the state of Michigan. We also erect our steel on site with a full crew of ironworkers and equipment including cranes, portable welding machines and rough terrain material handling equipment.
Currently, James O’Morrow Sr. is the majority owner of Sanilac Steel and has been for the past several years. James bought the other owners out during the decade of the 90’s. James’ son, James Jr., is a minority owner and is currently running the day to day activities of the company. All of Sanilac Steel’s employees are dedicated and experienced with most of them being with the company for many years.
David Christensen is our vice president and has been with Sanilac Steel for 15 years. He started with the company as an ironworker and has held positions of detailer and office manager. David works closely with every project we are involved in and is a very capable manager.
Don Rudgers is our shop co-manager and also administers some of our safety programs. He started with Sanilac Steel 5 years ago coming from a competitive company where he was also a shop supervisor. Don has fabricated structural steel for most of his professional work life and brings many years of knowledge to work everyday. Don works side by side with our other fabricators, Louis Sabo and Jordon Innes, sharing his invaluable experiences with them daily.
Mike Bechtel, Jeff Thompson and Brian Camire have all been with the company for many years and are able to work in both our fabrication shop and in the field on our erection crews. Mike Atkeson and James Kuntz worked for Sanilac Steel many years ago and have recently came back to work for us again and bring many years of ironworking experience with them.
Our accounting department is overseen by Debra Pincumbe who has been with Sanilac Steel for 9 years. Previously she worked for another company in the construction industry. She is currently training to become an estimator. Barb Rockwell joined our team over a year ago and works part time in accounting.
Our sales come mainly from fabricated structural steel that is fabricated and erected for commercial, industrial and municipal buildings in Michigan. We also do ornamental and miscellaneous steel such as stair towers and decorative railings. We have worked on projects from Michigan’s Upper Peninsula to the southern boarder. Buildings such as Alpena Hospital’s Oncology Center, Port Huron Schools Performing Arts Center, Sault St Marie Tribe Casino and Hotel at St Ignace, Tower Automotive Press Line in Elkton, Mt Pleasant Fire and Police Center and many, many more. We also offer crane rentals, retail steel sales, steel design and engineering, miscellaneous portable welding, even delivery and set up of support beams for houses.
