Excellence is a habit


It was the construction of a new middle school that inspired founder and father Jack Batzer to begin his legacy of Batzer family-run construction companies. He was a superintendent on that project, and the construction of that school gave Jack the confidence to start his own company in 1955. Fifteen years later, facing escalated charges from a steel supplier while building a mill, Jack decided “we can do that too” and started his own steel manufacturing facility, J.B. Steel, Inc. in 1970. Since then J.B. Steel, Inc. has grown into a successful commercial and industrial contractor offering specialized knowledge and experience in structural steel, structural concrete, pre-engineered metal buildings.
