This is Derek Miller Speaking on Business. Steel Encounters is a Utah success story – started four decades ago, it now has 260 employees across the country. Here’s president & CEO Tom Jackson with more.


Steel Encounters is an employee-owned building facade contractor and materials supplier headquartered in Salt Lake City. Founded in 1985, our company has completed over two billion dollars in construction services throughout the Intermountain and Pacific Northwest regions.

Our structural division provides value-added steel joist and deck materials and services.  Our Architectural Division installs building envelope glass, metal panel enclosures, and other specialty facades. 

Our signature building exteriors are visible throughout the valley, including the Salt Lake City International Airport Terminal and Concourses, the Eccles Performing Arts Center, Rice-Eccles Stadium, the Salt Palace, and many downtown highrises, including 95 South State, 111 Main, and the new Hyatt Regency hotel.

At every stage of your project, our employee-owners will provide you with the support and resources to ensure a smooth and successful project. I invite you to learn more about us at our website:
