Tip Robinson and Gary Swanger had previously worked together at J.M. Tull Metals Company.  During a Carolina football tailgate, they discussed the possibility of starting a metal supply company to service customers in the Upstate part of South Carolina.  It was decided to pray about this endeavor for 40 days and see where God was to lead them.  During this time they felt that God’s will for them was to start this business.  The two met for 9 months to come up with a business plan.  The company was organized May 2005 and began operation July 2005.  God has blessed the company with many customers that depend on them to supply their metal needs.
