About Us

Our History

Slay Steel, Inc was founded in 1984 by Ronnie Slay as a steel warehouse. Ronnie started his career in the steel industry working for his father in law, Jack Bates, at Bates Steel, Inc. When Slay Steel opened for business the team included Ronnie and his wife Jackie, along with their two sons, and one employee that came from Bates, Bobby Earl Eaves. Slay Steel served Meridian, East Mississippi, and West Alabama as a steel warehouse and service center, and we still do so today.

Slay Steel expanded to small fabrication projects, and within a couple of years, additional crew were added to keep up with fabrication.

Today, we continue to expand to serve our customers needs. We recently added a new roller bed to accommodate heavier and wider beams, and installed a new HE&M band saw in Bay Three.

With a dedicated team of 62 men and women, including the great grandson of Jack Bates, Slay Steel remains true to its foundational values of honesty, integrity, and quality.
