It was the building of a new middle school that inspired founder and father Jack Batzer to begin his legacy of Batzer family run construction companies. He was superintendent on that project, and the building of that school gave Jack the confidence to start his own construction company, the year was 1955. Fifteen years later, facing escalated charges from a steel supplier while building a mill, Jack decided “we can do that too” and started his own steel manufacturing facility, J.B. Steel, Inc. in 1970. Since then J.B. Steel has grown into an award winning commercial contractor offering structural steel, metal building, commercial, and industrial construction solutions.
