Jason Hetrick is "back"......!

Mike Linus and I are extremely excited to announce Jason Hetrick is joining our growing team at Montco Tube Sales. Jason has 16 years of experience in pipe and tube distribution and he has agreed to become our General Sales Manager here at Montco Tube Sales.  

Jason is motivated and eager to get back to work after his 5 months away from the industry.  He used his down time to travel and hone his golf game and claims to have shaved a few strokes off his handicap.       

Those that know him from his time spent as former President of Iron League and from his time in the local pipe and tube distribution market already know he is a talented leader and we look forward to him putting his skills to use for you our customers.

Jason and (recently hired) Dan Gillen are going to promote our products as well as our value added services.  Please feel free to reach out to Jason at

Dan Beisel
Vice President 

Market Update

Most of the steel market forecasts I follow believe domestic steel production will remain stable in 2017.  The two main factors for stability in production and confidence in pricing are infrastructure spending and China's home grown consumption of steel.  

Nationally the March scrap surge has decreased slightly from February.  But we expect surgecharges to rebound and possible base price increases in April.  

Regionally, lead times and hot rolled pricing have remained flat in February after a run up.   Lead times on structural tube fell slightly to 4.5 weeks on average while welded floor stock inventories have depleted.   

Cold Finished Bar

Thank you to everyone who participated in our recent survey.  Your feedback was appreciated regarding possible additions to our current product lines.  One commodity specifically with much interest was cold finished bar.   We will continue to analyze the market and how we can support your needs.  Any additional information you would like to share regarding this commodity would need to be sent to as the survey portal is now closed.
