McDonald Steel can be relied upon to produce the quality hot rolled steel products that keep our country operating and safe. Our hot rolling process is ideal for manufacturing cost-effective materials for use on federal USACE, DOD, DOE and DHS projects where economical pricing and efficient manufacturing practices are a concern.

Specialty cross sections can be hot rolled into special steel shapes for use as deck rails on Sea Barge Heavy Lift ships which are designed to carry heavy cargo and are part of the National Defense Reserve Fleet. Containers fitted with small railroad type wheels are rolled on and off the ship’s deck via the hot rolled rails provided by McDonald Steel.
