Story of our Company


In 1935, the Holtman brothers were born and raised in Park City and Salt Lake City Utah. It all began in 1946as Wasatch Metal and Salvage. The Holtman brothers with their father and founder of Wasatch Metal and Salvage, Arthur Holtman.

1950-1960: The main goal was to run an honest and full service junk yard. They collected scrap metal, cars, boilers, water heaters, etc. and if they heard of a place with some scrap, they’d go and pick it up. Once they brought material in, it would be sorted. If the metal was unsuitable for re-sale, it would be cut up and loaded onto train cars and trucks to ultimately be recycled. In those days, all the loading was done by hand. Scrap metal dealers were recycling before the term was invented!

In 1972, Wasatch Metal and Salvage was selling carefully selected, reusable steel from their stock. As time went on, their business and customer base grew and grew even more, customers wanted more and more of their great quality steel. Wasatch Metal and Salvage were recognized as the steel experts who had the right steel product for their customers’ project.

1977: Wasatch Steel, Inc. was incorporated, creating the “Steel Supermarket”. A full line of new inventory now complimented the used and surplus material.

FAMILY: Today, Wasatch Steel is still a family owned company with Bill Holtman as owner of the company and his daughter Teresa Holtman-Wu and son-in-law Lynn Hurst, who actively run and manage the company today.
