About Us

Raco Steel is a full service steel distribution center located in Markham, Illinois, just 30 minutes south of Chicago.

Since its founding in 1952, Raco has steadily grown to its 125,000 square foot production and storage facility.

We believe our longevity in the steel industry can be attributed to three core values:

  1. Long-lasting partnerships with our customers
  2. Commitment to integrity in all business transactions.
  3. Our mantra: Customer success is Raco’s success.

Our goal is to provide our customers with the highest quality steel at the best possible price. In pursuit of this goal, in 2001 Raco Steel Co. became one of the first steel service centers in North America to become ISO 9001 Certified.

We are proud of our record of steady growth and continue to expand our customer base, by providing both new and longstanding customers with steel supplier programs of the greatest total value.
