Davis Index: Market Intelligence for the Global Metals and Recycled Materials Markets

JD Fields is progressing beyond steel product distribution to manufacturing in the US after acquiring steel products manufacturer, Alameda Pipe and Fab.


The purchase of the Gardena, California based company will allow JD Fields to develop into a multiservice, vertically integrated distributor and manufacturer of its own steel products, the Texas-based oil & gas pipeline and civil infrastructure company noted in its announcement. 


Operating for 35 years, JD Fields’ two businesses focus on steel pipe for the oil and gas industry and on steel foundation products for civil Infrastructure.


Jay Fields, president and COO of JD Fields, said in a statement that acquiring the newly branded Alameda Pipe and Fab is a first step toward developing the company’s steel manufacturing business on the West Coast. The plan is to quickly acclimate to changing global dynamics to achieve supply and production of steel products by one entity.


Alameda, which was previously known as Alameda Pipe & Steel, has been operating since 1935, supplying specialty steel products along with the provision of detailed selections to contractors based on their individual needs – especially during weak or strong market conditions within the oil and gas sector.


JD Fields carries over 150,000mt of inventory in over 10 stocking locations in North America. The newly branded company will continue to operate privately.
