Contractors Steel, a division of UPG Enterprises LLC, has hired Jim Gould as the company's newly appointed West region sales manager. In his new role, Gould is responsible for the business development of Contractors Steel’s newest location in Phoenix, scheduled to open in the fourth quarter of 2020.

Jim joins Contractors Steel with more than 30 years of steel experience, holding key leadership roles at Nucor Yamato, Skyline Steel, and JD Fields. He is currently overseeing the hiring of operations and sales teams for the Arizona branch as well as managing the inventory levels for all steel products.

In addition, Gould will be tasked with establishing the Contractors Steel name to the earth retention and piling industries, structural steel contractors and fabricators for the entire West Coast and Southwestern United States markets.

“As the population out west continues to grow, so does the need for structural steel and piling in nonresidential construction applications” said Steve Letnich, COO of Contractors Steel. “I’m thrilled to have Jim on our team. His leadership and industry experience will drive the success of Contractors Steel expansion out west.”
