A Company That Stands For Something Stronger.

Tri-State Cold-Formed Steel Components was formed in 2003 with a shared vision to be the best supplier of cold-formed trusses and related components. Our mission is simple: Provide the best value and highest-quality goods and services to our customers — all while meeting and exceeding their expectations.
With over 125 years of combined experience and even more hard work, our team has set out to accomplish its mission by offering very competitive prices without sacrificing quality. Our services exist across various fields: steel trusses, bracing materials, and even installation services. We can combine metal roof trusses, floor trusses, load-bearing wall panels, metal decking, and installation to provide a one-stop shopping experience and turnkey solution for your cold-formed metal framing project. The best way to demonstrate our experience is to show you our work. We invite you to explore our portfolio and customers' testimonials. From the smallest project like a McDonald's or Starbucks restaurant to the Aqua on the Levee hotel and condominium project in Newport, Kentucky, we have the experience and resources to make your project a successful one.

We stand behind our steel. Or, in this case, under it.


They say form follows function.
This is what happens when they work together.
