Steelmakers in the United States are more than willing to battle each other for territory, customers and money. It’s a fair battle and part of what makes America great. However, what the steelmakers in the U.S. cannot fight is steel from China being imported into the United States at a price much cheaper than the metal costs to be produced in China. This past year has seen a large increase in the illegal “dumping” of subsidized “finished” metal products from China including reinforcing bars, steel plate in coil form, hot galvanized coated sheets and strip and cold rolled sheet products because of slowing demand and their need to export excess capacity.  This has drastically hurt the price of similar American produced products. And it’s not just China as India, Japan and South Korea are in the mix as well.

But where do you keep it? Where do you store your motorcycle when you don’t use it, when the weather is bad, when you go on vacation?

And what about the parts you purchase? Where do you store those when you have them? This is why you need a steel building from Curvco Steel Structures.

You work hard throughout the week and on weekends you just want to watch the game in peace. The problem is there are so many distractions and you have to be careful when you have small kids because a new big-screen TV is just another toy in their eyes. This is the idea that created the concept of the man cave, but most guys are unable to realize this dream because of two problems; your home does not have enough room to have an entire room dedicated to you, and you cannot afford to construct an additional room to your house.

Curvco buildings are ideal for virtually any application because they are versatile and durable. Many customers often combine applications or uses within the same prefab arch building. One such customer is James Crawford of Missouri.

Mr. Crawford contacted us about 2 years ago for a commercial steel building he wanted to use on his property in Missouri. He was opening another location for his custom luxury boat manufacturing business. Curvco’s builder services department supplied a factory certified contractor to do the installation. “A contractor from Curvco Steel Buildings came out to put up my building. I am very happy with the outcome!” said Mr. Crawford. The structure was a 60’ wide, 100’ long and 20’ high Q-model building. This high profile model is great for workbenches, racks and room to work along side of the walls without wasting any space.
