Who We Are


In 1989, Rob Braswell and Richard Flournoy, former Carolina Steel employees, acted on their entrepreneurial calling and founded Engineered Steel to provide quality steel for regional building projects.  Rob and Richard created a culture focused on delivering best in class customer service and quality steel products for General Contractors, setting them apart in the industry for over 28 years.  Rob and Richard built a reputation of being dependable and of following through to ensure their customers were satisfied.

Growth in the 1990's led to a move and to an expansion of facilities.  In 1998, Rob and Richard built the current 25,000 square foot facility on a 12-acre tract in Sophia, North Carolina.  The new facility quickly filled with additional demand from their loyal customers.  

Originally focused on the Piedmont Triad region of North Carolina, Engineered Steel now has projects across the Eastern seaboard and has expanded its footprint rapidly over the past decade.

In late 2014, Rick Ramsey joined the management team as President to help drive growth through Engineered Steel's loyal customer base as well as with new, growing general contractors.  Rick's background in industrial manufacturing combined with Rob and Richard's steel experience sets Engineered Steel apart from its competitors.
