OUR MARKETS AND INDUSTRIES
Sullivan Steel supplies steel for demanding performance applications where strength, longevity, and corrosion resistance are critical. We help our customers find niche and hard-to-find steel grades to solve manufacturing challenges and fill in market gaps when supply chains slow down.
You can find our products in critical engine bearings and aircraft parts, Formula One race cars, and beyond. Whatever the challenge, we have a steel that will meet your unique application. Explore our major industries below.
AEROSPACE & DEFENSE
Aerospace manufacturing comes with strict regulations and steep engineering challenges. We specialize in supplying high-quality steel for bearings and power transmissions — and other critical and non-critical components — that can withstand the rigors of high temperatures, corrosive environments, and regulatory standards.
Manufacturing bearings for critical applications requires high-quality, high-strength, wear-resistant steel that often must perform under a wide range of temperatures and exposure to corrosive conditions. We carry steel grades designed to meet these unique challenges and can help you choose the right grade to handle your needs.
Few industries push the limits of metals as much as motorsports. High torques, extreme shocks, and handling incredible loads while minimizing weight can turn the average metal into shreds. We carry grades that see extensive use in Formula 1 and can take the constant abuse while meeting complex design requirements that motorsports demands.
FOOD & BEVERAGE
Manufacturers in the food and beverage industry need wear resistant stainless steels that can hold up under high pressure and repeated chemical cleaning treatments without corrosion damage or discoloration. We carry steel with high cleanliness compositions that can help you create safe products — without constantly replacing your components.
Medical and dental applications require steel grades that have high hardness (without being too brittle) and can withstand autoclaving throughout the life of the part. Our medical-grade steels are used for surgical tools and maintain high hardness and sharpness over time while resisting corrosion and discoloration.
