DOUG ANDERSON
PRESIDENT

Doug Anderson started his career in the metals industry in 1974 as an inside salesperson with a service center in Chicago, IL. After a short while, he decided he wanted more customer interaction. Doug left the service center and went to the mill side as an outside steel tube salesperson. He learned the ropes first with a mechanical tube producer and then with a structural tube producer calling on accounts within the Midwest.

His next endeavor put him back in a service center role but added on experience working for an import/export company involved in all aspects of the metal industry business throughout the United States. The collective involvements of tubing and service center sales, and his import/exporting knowledge was the ground work for his real dream.

In 1995, Mr. Anderson had the opportunity to open his own metals service center company. His father operated the first ANCO Steel Company which was opened in 1958 as a supplier of special bar quality products. As a tribute to his family, Doug revived the family name and the ANCO Steel Company, Inc. was again operating in the steel industry. With the help of industry veterans Doug has brought together over the years, the company has grown to four warehouses and a separate corporate office.

Doug Anderson continues to be very active in many industry associations and has served in a board of director capacity in the past. Doug’s steel industry knowledge and history of contacts acquired, both as a vendor as well as customer-level, enable him to match the correct product with the appropriate customer.
