History and Team Our Family has been in the steel building industry since the 1960s.

Steve Ivanitz (founder of MSC) is a third-generation steel building expert whose father, Jim, and grandfather, Sam, started the family legacy in Saskatchewan in the 1960s. Steve then founded MSC in 2002, and since then has become renowned for an unequalled level of value-added service in the pre-engineered steel building industry across Western Canada and beyond.

Performance

Since its inception in 2002, MSC has become renowned for an unequalled level of value-added service in the pre-engineered steel building industry across Western Canada and beyond.

A talented team of in-house designers that create innovative plans to suit any industry or building application, combined with our very own, highly trained field workers that carry out the installation to rigorous standards, guarantees a finished product that looks, performs and lasts exactly as intended.

Heading the operation is company founder, Steve Ivanitz, a third-generation steel building expert whose father, Jim, and grandfather, Sam, started the family legacy in Saskatchewan in the 1960s. Backed by a devoted office staff, Steve oversees MSC’s projects to ensure there is constant collaboration between designers, managers, work crews and you.

Where many competing companies simply sell pre-engineered steel building kits, MSC offers the complete package. With a proven track record and hundreds of buildings across Western Canada, we’re with you every step of the way, from design to installation. That level of service, combined with our quality craftsmanship, is what sets us apart, and it’s what our clients have come to expect.

From constructing a warehousing complex in Nunavut, to the 144-foot clear span facility for Kicking Horse Coffee in Invermere, to the numerous self-storage compounds across BC, MSC can handle any job in Western Canada.
