If you’ve owned a steel building in the past, or even if you’ve just been researching building options, you probably already know some of the benefits of steel: strength, durability, value.

But did you know steel is the #1 most recycled material in the world? According to the Steel Recycling Institute, between 60 and 80 million tons of scrap steel are recycled every year by North American steel mills into new steel products and components. In fact, scrap steel is an ingredient in producing new steel.

Our building kits at Worldwide Steel Buildings are made of approximately 94 percent recycled steel, all of it sourced from American steel mills. Using recycled steel gives our customers all the great features of steel – lighter yet stronger than other building materials; resistance to all types of weather; flexibility of design; and more – with the added benefits that come from recycling, including:

  • Performance. Because of steel’s properties, it can be repeatedly recycled from one use or product to another without compromising structural integrity or performance.
  • Environmental impact. Recycling steel reduces the amount of resources consumed and emissions produced involved in creating steel products, reducing its impact on our environment and our planet.
  • Economy. Not having to produce new steel for every new product also reduces the cost of steel products to consumers – enhancing the already great value of this high-quality building material.
  • American manufactured. Worldwide is proud to use exclusively American steel, which means – because U.S. steel mills use largely recycled materials – that buying recycled steel is an important part of keeping money and jobs in our country and our communities.

Our goal at Worldwide Steel Buildings is to provide our customers high-quality, affordable steel building kits customized to their unique needs or purpose. We love to share our customers’ stories and the great things they are doing with our products:

Wings of Faith: “Real People Meeting Real Needs”

Wings of Faith Ministries provides ongoing support and donations to missionaries serving mainly Native American populations in California, Nevada, Arizona, New Mexico, as well as communities in Appalachian West Virginia. Their volunteer light aircraft pilots make more than 60 flights a year to bring food, clothing, medical supplies, and other aid to those who need it.

Several years ago, Wings of Faith purchased one of our steel building kits to house supplies and donations awaiting distribution to the communities they serve. Jim Yost, who coordinates logistics and deliveries for Wings of Faith, shared these thoughts and photos:

“Our building from Worldwide has proved absolutely invaluable in serving the very poor of the Native American reservations of the Four Corners area. I cannot imagine doing what we do without it. In May 2018, we moved over 50,000 pounds of supplies through this building.”

 

Thanks to Jim for sharing your story, and for the great work your organization is doing to help others! To learn more about Wings of Faith, visit flywithwings.org.

Summer is here – and wedding season has begun. June, August, September, and October are the most popular months for weddings, as well as other events such as family reunions, outdoor concerts or community gatherings.

Our high-quality steel building kits are fully customizable and an affordable way to create an event space tailored to your needs. Whether you own catering or special event business and want to offer customers a dedicated wedding/event space; your church wants to add or expand a reception hall, or you’re a proud parent wanting to create a custom space for your daughter’s (or son’s) dream wedding, we are here to help.

Wide Open Spaces

Because they don’t need columns, our steel structures offer clear spans from 24 feet to 225 feet, giving you clear floor spans and usable space all the way up to the peak.

Durable and Economical

Steel building kits are a convenient and quicker alternative than traditional construction – and generally much more affordable. The value of our custom metal buildings, however, comes not just from the budget but from their quality, durability, and ease of assembly. We manufacture our own trusses, which are welded in precision jigs for accuracy, double dipped in a rust-proof coating, and inspected to ensure your structure will stand the test of time.

Finishing Touches for a Perfect Space

Both our interiors and exteriors are fully customizable with a variety of styles, colors, and finishes to ensure your event space is not only functional, but attractive. Our customer service team will work closely with you to design your space inside and out, from \ electrical, water and HVAC, to layout, interior walls, overhangs or porches, and finishes ranging from wood to stone to stucco. Want a rustic country feel? Our Gambrel barn specialists can help you create a classic look and charm to your space.

Worldwide Steel Buildings was recently honored by the Kansas City Business Journal as one of its 2018 Champions of Business. This annual program recognizes companies based in the Kansas City area that contribute to our community’s economic strength and quality of life.

We are particularly proud to be a Champion of Business because the qualities the selection panel looks for are the same thing we believe allow us to provide a great product and great service to our customers:

Innovation

Our commitment to create steel buildings customized to each customer’s exact needs drives us to constantly find new and innovative ways to deliver on that promise. This includes our 3D Building Designer tool, which we developed to help you design every aspect of your dream building before you order. It also includes our approach to designing and manufacturing our steel building kits for easy DIY assembly to streamline budget and timeline. And, it’s why we love working with our customers to make their unique building ideas a reality – you are part of our innovation team!

Strength and Stability

Just like our building kits, Worldwide Steel Buildings starts from a solid foundation. We own and operate our own manufacturing facility so we control every aspect of quality and fabrication to meet your expectations. We work hard and smart to ensure you are getting an outstanding value, backed by our 50-year warranty. Our focus on giving customers a great product and great service with great value has kept us going and growing for 35 years, so you can be sure we will be here when you need us.

Giving Back

Most importantly, we are committed to being a great place to work to help our employees and our community thrive. As our owner, Jeff Snell, told the Business Journal: “Having an enjoyable place to work is part of the culture, but on top of that, we want our employees to feel empowered to make decisions and make the right decisions based on the customer experience and pride in their work.”

We take great pride in being able to give back to our community through creating jobs and contributing to the local economy. Also, by using exclusively American-made steel, we are not only ensuring high quality of our steel buildings, but by serving our customers in a way that supports our country’s economy as well.

This recognition couldn’t have happened without our tremendous employees and without the support of you, our customers. Thank you for your trust and confidence in us – you are our “Champions of Business”!
