ASD Names Action Steel’s Chase Steel Man of the Year

Ron Chase, president of Action Steel Corp., Edison, N.J., has been named Steel Man of the Year by the Association of Steel Distributors, Chicago. The annual ASD award honors an individual who embodies leadership, dedication, service and excellence in the steel industry.

Chase will be officially recognized at a black-tie event at the 2012 ASD Annual Convention March 24 at the Westin Kierland Resort & Spa in Scottsdale, Ariz.

“Looking over the list of the past honorees, I feel very humble to be included with people that I have always looked upon as extremely successful entrepreneurs in the steel industry,” Chase says.

Chase has been in the steel industry for 37 years. He got his start in the business after founding a rep organization in 1975 selling coils, sheets and steel building products in Ohio and Indiana. “While in school, I worked construction in the summers, and I always took notice of how many steel products were on a construction project. Coming from a blue collar background, when the opportunity presented itself to be involved with steel and construction, I felt it was the perfect match for me,” he says. 

Today, in addition to serving as president at Action Steel, Chase is chief operating officer at Super Stud Building Products, one of the largest regional manufacturers of metal studs, and is also a partner at Galaxy Metal Products, which manufactures steel doors and frames. All three companies are located in a 200,000-square-foot facility in Edison.

“Ron has certainly helped shape the present and future direction at ASD, and he has been a leader in the steel distribution and metal framing businesses, as well,” ASD President Jim Barnett says. “While serving as an association vice president, Ron continually brought fresh ideas to the board, many of them implemented, which has made ASD a stronger association overall.”
