FOUNDED BY LONGTIME STEEL INDUSTRY VETERANS, WE ARE PROUD TO BE A SUBSIDIARY OF AMG RESOURCES CORPORATION.
International Steel & Counterweights exists to provide customers with low cost, quality steel fabrications for use as counterweights, fabrications, weldments and steel supply.
Our mission at International Steel & Counterweights is to provide the
highest-quality products possible utilizing low-cost raw materials. Our success depends on customer satisfaction. As a policy, we do what it takes to ensure that satisfaction.
International Steel & Counterweights’ management has experience in the manufacturing of steel parts dating back to the 1950s.
This experience led them to realize that there was an unmet need in supplying industrial manufacturers with low-cost but high-quality steel components to be used as non-critical parts for various equipment products. Sourcing raw materials from steel mills from around the world, they began focusing exclusively on supplying cut parts, fabrications and weldments crafted from quality steel that was being overlooked and underutilized.
In 2010, after managing successful manufacturing operations in Ohio, Illinois and Pennsylvania, John Pastor and Paul Vesey, along with an experienced team, launched International Steel & Counterweights. We have been running full speed ever since.
Located in Youngstown, Ohio in the heart of the Mahoning Valley — an area rich in steel-making history and tradition — International Steel & Counterweights leverages decades of experience and the heritage of its local tradition to maximize value for its customers.
In 2019, International Steel & Counterweights launched its ISC Elevator Parts division, which supplies elevator parts from its Youngstown, Ohio facility and a new facility in Newark, New Jersey.
AN UNMET NEED
In the 1970s, Pastor realized there was an unmet need in supplying low-cost steel products to industry for their non-critical parts.
Working with steel mills from around the world, Pastor built a business focused exclusively on supplying cut parts, fabrications and weldments to industry, crafted from steel no one else needed.
A NEW PARTNERSHIP
Spinning off from the Maloof organization, Pastor and co-founder Paul Vesey ran operations in Ohio, Illinois and Pennsylvania for a number of organizations.
Finally in 2010, Pastor, Vesey and a tight-knit group of longtime associates ventured into partnership with AMG Resources Corporation to create International Steel & Counterweights. We have been running full speed ever since.
ADVANTAGES OF HERITAGE
Located in downtown Youngstown, Ohio, our plant offers enormous advantages.
The Mahoning Valley, as the area is known, was at one time the third-largest steel producer in the nation. The steel mills were the basis of the community and much of that tradition, heritage and deep understanding of the products remains in the area today.
