Mill Steel Co., one of the nation’s largest distributors of flat-rolled carbon steel, now offers its full line of flat-rolled carbon steel products for purchase through its e-commerce website.

The website features 65,000+ tons of steel available for purchase with full physical and chemical certifications provided for each coil, the company said.

A streamlined menu and comprehensive filters allow users to search their steel needs quickly and easily. Additionally, users can create custom inventory notifications for desired products.

The successful launch of the e-commerce website in October included painted and acrylic products. Sale volume through the platform has doubled since then. At the current run rate, annual sales will surpass $100 million, the company said.

“We’ve put a lot of effort into developing robust digital platforms and are excited to see where these tools take us as we continue to bring new features to market,” Mill Steel Chairman and CEO Pam Heglund said. Heglund is also the visionary behind the company’s digital transformation.

Mill Steel is in the final stages of being certified as a Women’s Business Enterprise by the Women’s Business Enterprise National Council (WBENC). The company anticipates being certified by the end of the year, making Heglund the leader of one of the largest women-owned businesses in the United States.
