Business Profile: Legacy Steel Buildings

Legacy Steel Buildings has been manufacturing high-quality, pre-engineered steel buildings for more than 50 years.  Like many North Dakota family businesses, Legacy is built on a foundation of hard work and honesty, but with business in over 100 countries, this is no mom and pop-style shop.

A Legacy in Steel Buildings

Bruce and Wayne Engkjer’s father and grandfather began manufacturing steel buildings that catered to agricultural in the 1960’s.  In the beginning, the company focused on steel Quonsets and catered to farmers across the nation.   For twenty-five years the family business manufactured machine storage and shops, hay and grain storage and buildings for any farm application.

Fifty years later, Legacy has expanded its range and engineers steel buildings to fit any industry’s need.

“Legacy now ships worldwide and our buildings are used for any and all building applications,” said Bruce Engkjer, owner of Legacy Steel Buildings.  “From retail space to corporate headquarters, and from mining and railroad needs to airplane hangars.”

Legacy supplies durable, high quality pre-engineered rigid frame steel buildings for industrial, commercial, residential, agricultural, government and military building construction.  If a project requires a steel building, Legacy can engineer the answer.

Legacy Buildings also offer 100% usable space – no beams or trusses are used in the architecture of the buildings, offering customer complete control of customizing the inside of the building.

Headquartered in Fargo, ND, Legacy Steel Buildings is an international company that prides itself in building 100% “Made in the USA”.  Each building is manufactured in McKees Rocks, Pennsylvania using the highest quality US commercial steel available today.  But, “Made in the USA” doesn’t mean that only US customers can reap the benefits.  Legacy currently has buildings in over 100 countries around the globe and is continuing to expand in international markets.

Legacy Steel Buildings are manufactured and built to last you and your company a lifetime.  All buildings also include comprehensive erection manuals and engineered computer drawings.  The factory design and detailed engineering of each building ensures that it will withstand years of use and environmental challenges.

Legacy uses only Galvalume steel, the highest quality, heaviest gauge commercial steel available on the market today.  The coating is backed by a 30-year warranty guaranteeing that your Legacy building will not fade or rust.

But the guarantee of quality from Bruce and Wayne Engkjer goes far beyond the steel itself.

“Our dedication to you, the customer, is immeasurable and we will continue to strive to ensure that your building project is as satisfying an experience as you deserve, even after the sale has long been completed,” said Bruce Engkjer.”  We are here to assist in the success of your present endeavor.  Our experience is very expansive, so please consider us an asset.”
