Rebar isn't just what we do, it's who we are. We are the Shaw family, tied to the industry for generations, and entering into a new chapter of our story. Shaw Steel is emerging onto the scene with enthusiasm, determined to bring a dedicated and fresh perspective to the industry.
We are Glen and Darin Shaw and this is our company's story, it begins and ends with family and is what Shaw Steel Services represents. In 1967 our father, Al Shaw, began work in the rebar industry and over the years, worked throughout North America on various complex projects. From tunnels, to bridges, civil structures to buildings, Al's journey through the industry was more than just influential to our story, it became the starting block for who we are today.
We got our first experience in the industry as young men using our summers, between the school years to make some extra money. Quickly, we learned strong backs and a relentless work ethic translated into success and personal growth. As we grew older, our ties to rebar could not be ignored. After years of working on a wide variety of jobs and projects, we decided to put our skills and knowledge to the test. In 2002, starting our first company together, B.A.R. Placers was not only a testament to our dedication and hard work but a glimpse into what we could achieve with experience and a forward thinking attitude. For 16 years, B.A.R. Placers lead the industry as a top performing placing team, servicing Calgary and surrounding areas.
In 2018, we were ready to expand, leveraging our placing pedigree to create a supply and fabrication service. Our vision and dreams were to provide the industry and our clients a new, better alternative, built on exceptional service and the ability to satisfy all rebar needs under one roof. Our passion for this vision turned into tireless work, manifesting Shaw Steel Services from a dream to reality. Today Shaw Steel Services is the fastest growing rebar service company in Alberta. Our commitment to providing clients superior service is what gives us the foundation for great relationships. We are passionate and proud of these relationships and the services we provide our clients, from pre-construction planning, budgeting and value engineering to fabrication, and installation.
Our company is built on family and our values - respect, fairness, dedication, honesty - and we vow to treat our clients with the same virtues.

Values are at the core of our service and we will never stop working for your success.
