We follow-up with our customers after every job to make sure they were happy with their buying experience and the quality of the bent steel, as well as to simply say “Thank You for the work.” We love feedback as we strive to make improvements every day in our in-office and shop procedures and processes. After following up on a recent job at Worthy Brewing in Bend, OR., we received the following response “It is us that is thanking you! The channels worked out great, and everyone is thrilled with the look. This is definitely one of the coolest structural projects I have had. You guys pride yourself in your workmanship, and that makes it so much easier on our end when we start with a quality product. Thanks again for the top shelf service.”

A customer recently called us and asked if we were ready for a difficult steel bending project out of 3½” Sch40 pipe. The project was for a Wind Sculpture in Oak Harbor Washington. The designer was hopeful that the material could be bent to countless radii and configurations. Some of the radii are elliptical, some bends are compound, some bends are helical bent, the list goes on. Once Albina reviewed the drawings we jumped at the opportunity to perform. The experts at Albina make the seemingly impossible bending projects, possible.
As congress passes legislation for road improvements, bent steel parts used on heavy road equipment will play a big part in making those improvements possible. Albina services many industries and provides bent steel parts for not only automotive and heavy construction equipment, but also aircraft, aerospace, boat trailers, boats, locomotives, and agricultural farming equipment.
Curved steel is not just used to create architecturally aesthetically pleasing buildings, it is also used in smaller manufacturing applications that require consistent, accurate and repeatable bends to create parts. Albina bends steel parts for aircrafts, boat trailers, boats,agricultural farming equipment and automotive applications. We have recently done several steel bends for light rail and electric bus and car applications. Our bends are used on Locomotive frames, boat frames, deck rails and even components for homeland security helping to protect our docks and ports.
How do you catch the attention of holiday shoppers this time of year? Place a decorative, eye-catching, ornamental sign at the entrance to your shopping center! Albina Co., Inc. can help you vision become a reality. Albina Co., Inc. recently completed another ornamental curved steel sign for the Village at the Peaks shopping center in Colorado. The curved steel materials included bent wide flange W12 X 79# A992 the hard way and bent tube steel TS 2″ X 2″ X .250″ WALL A500 GRB.
Materials we worked with:
TS 4″ X 4″ X .188″ WALL A500 GR B. 65 lengths rolled anywhere from a 30 ft radius to a 300 ft radius.
TS 4″ X 2½” X .188″ WALL A500 GR B. 28 lengths rolled anywhere from a 30 ft radius to a 120 ft radius.
TS 4″ X 1½” X .120″ WALL A500 GR B. 36 lengths rolled anywhere from a 30 ft radius to a 300 ft radius.
In honor of Veteran’s Day, I thought I would share a PT-658 boat restoration project that Albina Co., Inc. participated in. Albina bends and curves steel parts used on locomotive frames, boat frames, deck rails and even components for homeland security helping to protect our docks and ports. One example includes, PT-658, the last remaining operable PT boat from World War II. Albina bent and donated 3/4″ Sch40 Bare pipe bends to form a protective railing for the deck mounted guns and 5” OD x .120” wall stainless steel exhaust tubing for the Packard Diesel engines and 1/2” OD x .065” wall T304 stainless steel bends (coils) around the 5” OD stainless material to cool the extremely hot exhaust tubes.
