Our History

Whirlwind Steel is 100% family owned and operated with manufacturing facilities in Texas and Georgia. We serve the needs of contractors, builders, architects, businesses, governmental organizations, and consumers.

 

For over 65 years discerning customers have turned to Whirlwind with confidence for metal buildings and components; panels, primary and secondary structural framing, trim, roofing, solar racks and a full line of metal building accessories and trims. Both welded and cold steel framing is done by fully trained professionals and our quality control team is the best in the industry. Now is the time for you to find out why so many people have counted on Whirlwind Steel.

 

Early Years

Whirlwind Manufacturing Inc was founded in Houston, Texas, in 1955 by C.O. Sturdivant. Originally a manufacturer of whole-house attic fans, by 1961 Whirlwind had expanded into the manufacture and sale of metal building components, including panels, secondary structural framing, and trim. In 1966, seeing the growing demand for metal buildings, C. O. hired a structural engineer to begin the design, manufacture, and selling of pre-engineered building systems in addition to the component parts.

 

At the passing of C.O. Sturdivant in 1972, his son Jack Sturdivant took the reins as President and CEO. Jack has grown the company from a regional metal building company into a successful business with a diverse range of building products being produced at manufacturing locations across the U.S.A. In 2001, Jack’s son Ty Sturdivant joined the company and in 2012, became President. Today, Ty and Jack work closely together and are leading the company into the future.

 

Expansion

By 1998 the Houston plant was no longer large enough to serve the growing demand from builders across the country, so Whirlwind opened its second plant in Atlanta, Georgia. Since 2001 Whirlwind Steel has completed over 40,000 building projects.
