STI-SPFA is the voice of the steel plate fabrication industry.

We build relationships with like-minded organizations to promote the benefits of steel as the material of choice for all these applications.
STI develops and disseminates industry standards, recommended practices, and procedures that improve product performance, quality inspection, installation, and testing. Several states have adopted STI’s AST standards, and they are well-known and highly-regarded by federal authorities as well.
