"We are your one-stop, cost-effective solution for precision stock removal."


In 1950, Steve S. Schaffer, Sr., recognized the need for rotary surface grinding in the fast-growing Southern California manufacturing industry.  Steve knew that the Blanchard Grinding process would offer increased efficiency and superior quality while reducing costs and turnaround times.

From the very beginning, Steel Services Company offered high-quality workmanship, reliable deliveries, and extraordinary value.  The result was a steadily growing base of satisfied customers.
