After serving in WWII, Art Moore entered the steel industry with the same dedication and desire he exemplified in the service for his country. After the war and taking his first job with Republic Steel, Art gained more industry knowledge through employment at Colorado Fuel & Iron, Jessop Steel, and Mills Wolfe. During that time Art built dedication to quality and excellent service along with a strong commitment to his customers. Art envisioned a real need, and founded American Alloy Steel in 1971. American Alloy flourished at it’s original location for over 30 years. After multiple expansions to both warehouse and office space, in 2006 they relocated to it’s present location at 6230 North Houston Rosslyn Road – Houston, TX.
American Alloy Steel (AAS) was the first service center to stock Pressure Vessel Quality (PVQ) carbon and alloy steel plate. In placing the customer’s needs first coupled with a consistent quality product including 100% traceability on all Mill Test Reports to each item of inventory, AAS grew. Currently AAS has 6 stocking locations across the United States & Canada totaling over 500,000 sq ft of warehouse space on roughly 50 acres. To accommodate a worldwide market demand, AAS has expanded physical coverage in the Caribbean, Mexico, Central and South America. Growing from not more than a dozen employees to over 200 today, AAS is a leading service center that supports a divergent group of industries including refining / energy, power / utility, mining / aggregate, offshore / drilling, shipbuilding / vessel repair, and many other related industries.
Like the industries themselves, AAS has faced some of the same challenges along the way. While the company has grown, Art and the entire company still maintain the same commitment to providing unparalleled customer service, a strong quality control program, and a complete quality product, on a daily basis. With over 40 years of continuous service, the company looks forward to continued growth by focusing on it’s customers and servicing their needs.
In addition to being the premier Steel Plate Service Center in the United States, American Alloy Steel exports steel plate to over 40 countries on a regular basis. Our International Sales Department, and our Latin and South American Sales Department stand ready to assist our international customers with their steel export needs.
