Our History

On January 1, 2012, Metalwest and Tad Metals, two members of O’Neal Industries (ONI), merged to form O’Neal Flat Rolled Metals (OFR Metals).

Metalwest was a leading processor and distributor of non-ferrous and carbon sheet, coil, and plate products throughout the Western U.S. Tad Metals specialized in the distribution and processing of stainless and aluminum sheet, plate, and long products in the Northeast, Southwest and Canada.

These two members of ONI, the nation’s largest family-owned metal service center company, joined together in the formation of OFR Metals to offer greater value that combines the expertise and experience of both companies.
