About us

For over half a century Lindquist Steels Incorporated has specialized exclusively, in the distribution of the finest tooling materials.  Founded in 1944 by George Lindquist, Lindquist Steels remains privately owned and operated by the original family. Throughout the years we have consistently upheld our founder’s exceedingly high standards for excellence in both product and service.  As a result we have built a prestigious roster of loyal clients representing a wide range of industries including the demanding appliance, plastic, rubber, military, aerospace, medical, and automotive industries.

It’s nice to know that we have such a dependable partner outside of these company walls.


The people at Lindquist have always treated us honestly and make every effort to ensure that our needs are met and production is never at risk
