From steel supplier to manufacturer

June 2020

JD Fields & Company, a leading US oil and gas pipeline and civil infrastructure steel products distributor, has acquired Alameda Pipe & Steel Company, a steel products manufacturer based in Gardena, California.

The purchase of the newly branded Alameda Pipe and Fab enables the 35-year-old JD Fields & Company – which has long-operated as a company of two business units focusing on steel pipe for the oil and gas sector as well as steel foundation products for civil infrastructure – to continue its evolution into a one-stop, vertically integrated supplier and manufacturer of its own steel products.

“We are moving quickly to adapt to changing global dynamics so that steel products can be manufactured by one company,” said Jay Fields, President and COO of JD Fields & Company.

“Our acquisition of Alameda Pipe and Fab is the first major step in a strategic growth plan to move into the steel manufacturing industry as we continue to expand on the West Coast. I am excited about the opportunity to absorb Alameda’s plants and bring on their top-level executives, who have the right connections and deep industry knowledge in the field to rival any competitor,” he added.

The acquisition of the 85-year old Alameda Company will allow JD Fields to maintain the same revenue – even in the current down oil and gas market – as well as provide added value to customers who are looking to buy top quality niche steel products with better options for contractors looking for specific products and services that meet their unique needs.

JD Fields & Company, a Fields Company, has been a leading international supplier and distributor of API line pipe for oil and gas applications and piling systems for heavy civil, port/marine projects since it was founded by Jerry Fields in 1985. Its diverse business model operates with top sales and engineering professionals drawing from 150,000 tonnes of inventory strategically located throughout more than stocking facilities across North America.

In addition to its path to vertical integration with production of rolled and welded casing as well as pipe and structural fabrication, JD Fields is breaking ground in Houston on a new state-of-the-art spiral weld pipe mill that will produce unique heavy wall structural pipe to serve DOT highway, USACE marine, and private port/civil sectors.

The downstream value-added capabilities of R&W casing, coatings, pipe and specialty beam fabrication will firmly position the mill as the low cost, high quality producer.

With 120 years of combined experience, the Fields and Alameda Companies have each earned their reputations in the industry as leading steel suppliers and manufacturers, respectively, by investing in industry experts with unique skillsets.
