Family owned and operated structural steel fabricators and erectors since 1973, Campbell & Shaw Steel, Inc. has provided first class Structural Steel, Miscellaneous Steel & Custom Steel Services to almost every sector of industry in Michigan and abroad. This year, we celebrate our 48th anniversary as a structural steel contractor.
The company was founded by John Campbell & Ken Shaw (John's son-n-law) as Campbell & Shaw Steel Fabrication, Inc. in 1973. When Ken retired in 2011, the company was acquired by Karen and Mark Lietke who renamed the company Campbell & Shaw Steel, Inc. Our President and CEO, Karen Lietke, was proud to acquire such a reputable and well run business. She continues to provide the core values of the original founders by providing excellent customer service and quality fabrications at competitive costs. She believes in the old adage to treat customers how you would like to be treated. Please check out our Projects page to see some of our current and previous projects and what some of our customers and suppliers are saying about us.

We are a dedicated structural steel fabrication company. We are able to operate a very flexible system of working hours meaning that we can meet your deadlines and will be honest with you prior to commitment if we are unable to achieve certain goals. Bonding is also available upon customer request.
