Western Tube & Conduit was established in Oakland, CA in October, 1964, performing threading of Rigid Conduit. In 1966 we added a facility in Vernon, CA, and installed a tube mill producing electrical conduit.
The present facility, in Long Beach, CA, was acquired in 1975, and since then we have added multiple tube mills, a galvanizing facility, and cutting and finishing operations. We are the largest manufacturer of steel conduit, galvanized fencepost, and both galvanized and non-galvanized (black) mechanical steel tubing on the West Coast.
Our headquarters, factory and main warehouse are in Long Beach and occupy 420,000 sq. ft., covering 21 acres. We also have numerous warehouse and distribution facilities all around the U.S., making it easy for customers to receive their deliveries promptly.
Our motto is “Service, Quality & Friendship Since 1964”, and we really mean it. We have gone to great lengths to make sure our culture stresses that, and we are strongly oriented towards Continuous Improvement and Quality. That indeed covers all aspects of our operations, not just product manufacturing. We are certified to ISO9001 and ISO14001, and meet all the various spec requirements that are pertinent to the products we manufacture.
Our culture emphasizes that employees take a proactive approach to Customer Satisfaction. We understand that success comes from being knowledgeable and helpful, understanding customer’s applications and requirements, meeting all specifications, and providing on-time delivery. Our ultimate goal is to be recognized as the best in the industry, and to be your “go-to” supplier.
