History

Our Roots Run Deep

Beginning in 1964, when we first opened shop in Richmond, BC, Tree Island Steel has been producing the highest quality wire and wire products in our manufacturing facilities in North America. Since then, the Richmond facility has grown from 40,000 sq. ft. to over 400,000 sq. ft., and covers 38 acres of land.

Over the past 50 years, the company has grown in size through expansion and acquisitions:

  • In 1972, Tree Island Steel acquired K-Lath stucco reinforcing products to the California housing industry
  • In 2000, Tree Island Steel the Company acquired Halsteel a manufacturer of collated nails located in Ontario, California
  • In 2001, Tree Island Steel the Company acquired  Industrial Wire Products (IWP) a manufacturer of carbon wire products, collated nails, and stainless steel wire
  • In 2015, Tree Island Steel the Company acquired the assets of Irving Wire Products in Calgary Alberta, Canada

While the Company has gone through a number of changes over those fifty years, the philosophy of offering quality products and great service has not diminished. Since those early days, our customers have relied on our reputation for quality, and our commitment to that focus remains important to all Tree Island Steel employees and management.

Today, we are proud to produce products and provide a level of service that exceeds the demands of our 21st century customers. Fifty years is just the beginning for Tree Island Steel.
