In the early 1980's founding partners recognized a need in the
construction market for a rebar producer who could do more than
provide fabricated steel. What was needed was someone who could
provide steel in short-order, acknowledging the hectic reality of
construction projects. This need was the basis for founding
In 1985, William "Bill" Casey and Terry Owens created Bec-Don.
In a leased industrial space not much larger than an oversized
garage in Lithonia, Georgia, Bec-Don was formed. With help from
time to time by various family members, Bill and Terry were able to
get the business started. By focusing initially on creating
relationships and building credibility with contractors -- mostly
in the residential construction market -- Bec-Don was able to
quickly grow, and out-grow it's Lithonia location.
Bec-Don moved to downtown Conyers, Georgia, where it stayed for
almost a decade. Building on the relationships formed and proven
ability to delivery high quality, high value service, the partners
were able leverage their past successes and expand into the broader
commercial and industrial markets.
In 1995, Bill and Terry decided to make (assumedly) their last
move for the Atlanta operation. They acquired 8 acres in Oxford, GA
-- only 10 minutes from their Conyers location -- and built the
30,000+ square foot facility that is currently home to Bec-Don.
Thru the years, Bec-Don has grown along with many of its
customers. As our customers mature, so does Bec-Don. Our success
depends on our ability to ensure the success of each of our
customers' projects. If you succeed, we succeed!
