Blair Strip Steel Company
Our Commitment To Excellence And Growth
Blair Strip Steel continues to expand our focus on the material and service needs of the heavy gauge stamping and fineblanking industries. In order to earn and support this growth, we offer the following:
  • State-of-the-art annealing facilities to insure the softest properties, fully-spheroidized material;
  • A full range of steel grades - low carbon, high carbon, alloy, HSLA, electromagnetic iron and custom grades;
  • A full range of thicknesses - applications from .040" to .625" thick;
  • The shortest production lead times in the industry - our nimble size, flexible operations and broad raw material inventory make us quicker than anyone for emergency requirements;
  • Annual programs, blanket orders and forecasts ensure the quality benefits of heat lot sourcing and dedicated inventories of hot bands in-stock insure 100% on-time deliveries;
  • Our experience and metallurgical expertise help design steel for intricate applications and provide solutions to your metalworking challenges.
Most importantly, we're listening to the industry and ready to respond with new grades, unique properties, innovative supply programs, long term partnership agreements and whatever it takes to earn your business. We appreciate your business and are ready to grow. Thanks for your consideration.

In 2010, Blair launched BelleFlex Technologies, LLC, a manufacturing subsidiary dedicated to producing world-class, engineered Belleville disc springs.  BelleFlex supplies disc springs to the energy market, used in flange bolting, industrial valve, and downhole drilling applications. We also produce custom disc springs.  For more information, visit us at or call us at (724) 540-5053.
Quality In Everything We Do
Blair is ISO-9001 and IATF 16949 certified by SRI through May 2020. We carefully choose and monitor our hot mill sources for quality. When possible, we match a preferred hot band supplier and heat lot quantities for each application to limit variation in chemistry and properties from coil-to-coil and order-to-order.
Blair does its own roll grinding to maintain control and consistency of the required surface texture.
Our lab facility performs testing for hardness, yield, tensile, elongation, microstructure, chemistry, surface topography and heat-treatment response.
We're proud to say our material quality reliability is demonstrated year after year by a rejection rate of less than 1/2% per year.
Blair's narrow-width tandem mills are designed to produce superior gauge control in very heavy gauge materials from low carbon to high carbon and alloy steels. Tolerances as tight as +/- .0005" are available on many items. Often, material is rolled at the finished width to insure the best control of shape elements like crown, wedge/taper and parallelism.
Overall, Blair is uniquely capable of producing consistent dimensions and properties in heavy thicknesses, head-to-tail, coil-to-coil, order-to-order and year-to-year.
