Who We Are and What We Do..

Carlson Steelworks was founded by Lowell Carlson in 1983.  In 2000, after building the business and moving to the 2001 Grant Street location, his son Paul purchased the business.  Paul further expanded Carlson and added a new fabrication shop in 2008.  In 2011, Paul became a partner in Mt. Baker Powder Coating and built a new home for the business next door.  Paul now is the 100% owner of Mt Baker Powder Coating.  

Carlson Steelworks provides friendly service with an emphasis on quality products and customer satisfaction.  

Whether your project is large or small, Carlson Steel aims to give you the best service for your project needs.


We are open to the public and are happy to accommodate both small retail sales (cut to order while you wait) as well as large  commercial projects, including:


Carlson Steelworks stocks a wide variety of steel and aluminum, in both shapes and sheets (i.e. smooth/diamond plate). In addition, we also stock welded wire mesh (concrete mesh and galvanized hog panels), expanded metal, bar grating and perforated sheets.  We can also offer fast delivery on special order for items we do not keep in stock.


Carlson Steelworks can handle your fabrication needs, both small and large, including engineered structural components for buildings and industry all over Washington and Alaska.  Our shop equipment includes both MIG & TIG welders & overhead cranes for easy loading and unloading.


Whether you need a couple of sticks, or hundreds of tons cut, bent, and delivered to your job site, Carlson can deliver.

"Carlson Steel has always given us great service and competitive pricing on both rebar and structural steel."
