Founded by Marvin Priefert in 1964, Priefert has grown into one of the largest farm, ranch and rodeo equipment manufacturers in the world. When Marvin built his headgate prototype, he had no idea that his first piece of ranch equipment would help revolutionize the livestock handling industry and go on to become the foundation of one of the most respected ranch equipment manufacturing companies in the business. Now in its third generation of leadership, Priefert is still family owned and operated. Its product offerings have expanded to include cattle, equine, poultry, canine, and rodeo lines, making Priefert a one stop shop for all your farm, ranch, and rodeo needs.
With a history of steel fabrication and a high consumption volume of shape and coil products, Priefert's expansion into the steel sales market was a natural progression. In 2008, Priefert began to expand its capabilities and product mix to meet the needs of other steel-consuming businesses. Since that time, Priefert Steel Sales has grown exponentially. Headquartered in Mount Pleasant, Texas, Priefert Steel owns and operates steel processing centers in Benton, Arkansas and in Fort Worth, Texas as well as a distribution center in Boise, Idaho.
Priefert Steel operates 5 slitter lines; 6 leveling and cut-to-length lines providing a range of blanked and cut-to-length sheets; as well as 3 flats/strip machines that allows us to level and edge condition strip for flat stock. Priefert Steel is currently producing high speed, edge-conditioned, roll-formed angle, and channel. Production also includes the operation of two tube mills that produce square, rectangle, and round tubing cut-to-length. With additional processing, Priefert can offer balled, notched, and swedged tubing.
