About Us

For almost 50 years TMS has been serving customers with steel fabrications and weldments. What started out as a small family owned business in 1964 has transformed into one of the premier metal fabrication welding houses in the Midwest. With a reputation for quality workmanship, innovative ideas, and customer service, TMS has evolved to meet the challenges of our customers and the metals industry.

With a commitment to on-time delivery of quality products, TMS specializes in high quality welding, quick-turn prototype work, and long run production jobs serving customers in several industries. The success of our company has enabled us to expand our facilities to our current size of over 140,000 square feet of manufacturing and assembly floor space.

In May of 2007 TMS became a subsidiary of LB Steel, LLC which is headquartered in Harvey, Illinois. LB Steel is a market leader in both Non-Prime strip mill plate and steel counterweights in the country. With state of the art engineering, processing, fabrication, welding, and machining services, LB Steel and Topeka Metal Specialties are ready to meet the rigorous demands of our customers. Although several things have changed in this company since the beginning – one thing has remained the same at TMS – hard work and dedication of our people!
