Federal Steel Supply was founded in St. Louis, MO in 1979 by three co-founders looking to provide industrial markets with hard-to-find heavy wall pipes and value-added services. In 2019, the company was acquired by V&A Capital, which supported the growth of FSS by executing the add-on acquisition of Process Piping Materials in 2021, building the company’s product offerings, and expanding its geographic footprint. FSS now has distribution facilities in Missouri, Texas (two locations), Louisiana, and New Mexico to support its customers nationwide.
The company serves a strong and loyal customer base in growing and diverse end markets such as industrial fabrication, food & beverage, midstream oil & gas, power generation, and construction. FSS has established direct relationships with a global network of mills, enabling it to source high quality and difficult-to-get products with a short turnaround time.
