North Shore Steel is a family-owned and operated steel service center.
Founded as North Shore Supply in 1955 by William and Lou Beth Nemzin, the company started in the salvage and scrap business. During the early years, the Nemzins met the growing needs of the Houston Ship Channel industrial sector by supplying a large range of products, including steel, pipe, fittings, flanges, and valves, as well as industrial tools, equipment, and supplies. It was the Nemzins’ idea to be the “supermarket for industry,” and with grit, determination, and hard work, their vision became a reality.
In the early 1980s, the second generation of family entered the business and planted the seeds for further growth. Using the latest in computer technology, exercising fiscal responsibility, and leveraging a workforce dedicated to customer service, the second generation helped to expand North Shore Steel into a premier provider of steel products and services to the Gulf Coast region.
And today, with the third generation in the business, North Shore Steel proudly remains true to its mission.
