TRURO, N.S., Dec. 1, 2020 – Steel Plus Network, North America’s premier steel buying group welcomes QTG as a new supplier for members across Canada and the United States. The SPN and QTG partnership brings together a premier supplier specializing in the transformation of mechanical and structural steel tubing, support columns, and finished and semi-finished products, with North America’s premier structural steel fabricator network.

Colleen Doucette, President of Steel Plus Network: “QTG’s history in the steel industry is indisputable. For over one hundred years they have worked tirelessly starting in 1929 with producing galvanized buckets and chimney pipes for hardware stores and have since become true experts in the field of tubing. Now focusing on steel processing, QTG is a welcome addition for all Steel Plus Network member across North America.”

Stefanie Bayard, Director of Corporate Sales at QTG: “2020 was a huge year of change for us. Our company has sold its tube mill and is now exclusively dedicated to manufacturing tubing steel products. This is a crucial step for our centenarian family business, and we are now investing close to $20 million in a new plant with state-of-the-art equipment to become a one-stop shop. We are looking for more partners and being part of Steel plus Network can help us understanding the structural market and create new and exciting relationships with their members.”
