Division of Chapin & Bangs Co.

Since 1944, Lindquist Steels has been dedicated to providing only the finest quality tool steel and specialty metals to the demanding tooling, mold making, automotive, aerospace, medical, and defense industries. 

Lindquist Steels has grown into one of the most recognizable and trusted suppliers of critical tooling materials in the USA.


Established in 1888, The Chapin & Bangs Company is a premier steel service center with a deep and extensive inventory and a focus on quality and fast delivery. Over the past century, Chapin & Bangs has expanded its product line embraced new technologies, and built a reputation for dependable customer service.  Chapin & Bangs stocks a massive range of carbon, alloy, and stainless steel products in a wide variety of stock forms.


Chapin & Bangs also has one of the most comprehensive value-added services options found anywhere.  The facility is full of the newest and most advanced laser, hi-def plasma & flame, and water-jet cutting systems.  As well as a massive array of precision sawing, shearing, and milling equipment.


Together, Lindquist Steels and Chapin & Bangs provide one of the most comprehensive inventories of quality materials and value-added services of any service center. Our experience and capabilities allow us to be uniquely positioned to support manufacturers in nearly all their steel requirements.


In September of 2019, Lindquist Steels and Chapin & Bangs officially merged together. This has enabled us to maximize efficiencies and make it easier for our valued customers to purchase all of the materials in one place.
