"We buy and sell metal processing machinery!"


Over 50 years of experience and over 20 U.S. patents in developing, designing, and manufacturing highly-efficient aluminum and steel processing plants. Learn more here about Ford B. Cauffiel, the “Master Entrepreneur”!


In 1989, inventor, businessman, and philanthropist Ford Cauffiel became aware of the serious fiscal and social costs of illiteracy. Attributing his own achievements to peer tutoring that gave him self-confidence and a taste for success and reflecting on the advantages he had noted in cross-training in his own business, Mr. Cauffiel created Students for Other Students (S.O.S.).


American Steel Products Company was established in 1953 to address the immediate needs of used coil processing machinery to end-users all over the world by helping them get into production as quickly as possible at a minimum investment.

We provide used machinery “as is” or reconditioned. We provide used machinery and terminal components individually or as a complete system and assure our buyers of the correct capacity and reliability of their machinery that comes with purchasing machinery from American Steel Products Company.

All reconditioned machinery is thoroughly inspected and all worn, broken or missing parts are replaced. In some circumstances we can also test the machinery under power for an additional fee. All reconditioned machinery is sold with a one-year, new machinery guarantee. The machine rating will be equal or above the original OEM’s specifications.
