Over 90 years of Excellence

Our Story

Wexler & Sons, Inc. first began serving the Chicago land area in the year 1928, when David Wexler, first generation Wexler, began re-selling excess steel from the United States government post WWI. In 1934, D. Wexler & Sons formally embarked on a nine-decade run after incorporating with the State of Illinois, helping to provide the raw materials that sculpted parts of the Chicago Skyline. With the help of his sons, Abe, Sam, Sol and Joe, David Wexler worked through the years to build Wexler steel by providing quality steel and excellent service to the wagon builders and metals smiths who helped to build the foundation of what Chicago and its surrounding suburbs came to be. Abe Wexler carried on the family business with the help of his brothers and dedicated staff at Wexler, some of whom have been with the company for more than 30 years. From the folks inside our warehouse, to the sales staff in the office, our employees exemplify the knowledge and expertise that have allowed us to serve a wide range of customer needs.

Wexler & Sons, Inc. has been fortunate to work with customers who have installed our products in everything from Wrigley Field, US Cellular Field and Solider Field, to the thousands of apartment buildings, commercial buildings and residential homes in the Chicago and Northern Illinois areas. From High-rises to hospitals, from appliance manufactures to movie special effects departments, D. Wexler is a diversified established metal service center with long term aspirations to service the Chicago land area for decades to come.

We continue to be a part of the modernization of our surrounding communities by supplying good quality ferrous and non-ferrous products to the fabricators, manufacturers, construction companies.

We have been a strong proponent of US made raw materials for the past nine decades, taking pride in purchasing from the United States largest steel producers. We feel strongly that a strong economy comes from US consumers doing their part to support American companies.
