WESTERN TUBE & CONDUIT CORPORATION has become one of the West’s major producers of mechanical tubing. Theinside2 reason for this rapid rise was a carefully planned effort to do things differently. As a business philosophy, the company has organized itself, first and foremost, as a service organization. We view ourselves as a manufacturing extension of your own production facilities.

This means that our production engineers must work from your inputs to develop the specific ways which our product can be most effectively manufactured to meet your needs.

In our plant we have the equipment, technology and the manpower to lay out the most intricate tooling, assuring you of the highest quality mechanical tubing available. As part of our goal to be the leader in this industry, not known for innovations, WESTERN TUBE & CONDUIT has developed an engineering and manufacturing sophistication which is unexcelled.

Our mechanical tubing is found in some of the most demanding applications anywhere. These range from structural and decorative portions of furniture, to hundreds of various components for commercial, automotive and industrial uses.

Making a high quality product is not enough. We maintain a computerized inventory control that can pinpoint the availability of all mechanical tubing we have in stock… and within minutes. To further eliminate any gaps in the service loop, we maintain a fleet of trucks that we own and control. So, when that emergency order arises and you need something now, we can deliver.

WESTERN TUBE & CONDUIT CORPORATION’S proven products will provide you with your required end results. We maintain sufficient inventories of the sizes and shapes listed below. Some of the specific mechanical tubing products we carry are:

AUTOMOTIVE GRADE
This tubing utilizes a low-carbon strip designed to fabricate with greater ease and to withstand severe bending and flaring.

HOT ROLLED WELDED
An ideal surface finish suited for painting and is also higher in both tensile and yield than the cold-rolled product.

WELDED GALVANIZED TUBING
Produced from coated flat-rolled steel and is particularly suited to use where corrosion resistance is a concern.

ALUMINUM KILLED STEEL
A specific grade recommended for tubing that is to be heat treated or where cold working characteristics are required.

COLD ROLLED WELDED
This product has a clean and smooth surface with close tolerances on the wall thickness.

IN-LINE GALVANIZED O.D. TUBING
A patented process to coat O.D. only with zinc and with a painted ID.

SHAPES (SQUARE OR RECTANGLE)
Round tubing that is slightly larger than the circumference of the finished shape that is then formed to the size (or shape)
desired.

With all this, you probably think that mechanical tubing from WESTERN TUBE & CONDUIT is going to be more expensive. Wrong! We’re just the best. Let us quote on your next order, and we’ll show you what we mean.
