History Of Rainier Steel, Inc.    
         
   

A Legacy in Steel
Established in 1979 as the Premier MBE/DBE rebar placing company in the Pacific Northwest. Rainier Steel employs Union Ironworkers from locals 86, 29, and 14. We specialize in rebar placement, but have extensive experience in post tensioning systems, erection of structural steel, w.w.f., couplers and other miscellaneous items covered by Union Ironworkers.

Financially Sound
Rainier Steel is a financially strong company with a bonding capacity up to $10,000,000. Since Rainier Steel's inception, large high profile projects have been the mainstay of our success. In the late 1970's and early 1980's projects such as the Hood Canal Bridge Pontoons, 76 Story Columbia Center Tower or the Lott Wastewater Treatment Plant established Rainier Steel as a diverse, capable MBE/DBE subcontractor. Serving Contractors and working on mutually successful projects has been a tradition that has now entered its 4th decade. As a matter of fact, nearly every other DBE rebar placing company had its beginning working for Rainier Steel, Inc.

The Future
More recently Rainier Steel, though no longer a MBE/DBE subcontractor, has completed the I-90 Lacey Murrow Bridge, Harborview Hospital and many other diverse projects.
