About Upstate Steel

Upstate Steel is a family owned and operated certified women-owned business enterprise founded in 1992 in Buffalo, NY. Today, with an expanded product line, full processing capabilities and our own fleet of trucks, Upstate serves customers throughout Western New York and the United States.

Upstate Steel is one of the largest suppliers of wear-resistant steel in New York State. We have the ability to design and fabricate wearparts for any abrasive application, and we specialize in handling projects with special needs.

“For nearly 20 years, we have worked hard to supply our customers with on-time deliveries of competitively-priced products. Our business was built on this very basic concept and that mission will never change.”
