“I’ve loved steel detailing ever since it was introduced to me when I was still struggling to choose a career to pursue.. But it doubled when I got affiliated in Tectonix Steel, Inc. The heads, especially the owner, is always responsive to any question we have or whatever opinion or ideas we have to say. We have never been treated differently even if we come from a different race and they make sure that we belong to a one big company-family. They see to it that all of our hard work are being noticed and evaluated and rewarded generously. Yes, working in this company is very rewarding. It’s not so very often that anyone can receive an email with a ” smiley 🙂 ” from her/his boss. Top that!”
We take care of our employees because we want to keep them until they retire. We support the Aflac plan and pay half of this for our employees. We also offer a 401k for all of our employees at Tectonix Steel. We know how stressful the holidays can be, so we give employees extra holiday pay to help you cover extra expenses. We offer Christmas Eve and New Years Eve as holiday so our employees can enjoy this time with their family.
We also offer a structured profit share plan. Every quarter, achievements are reviewed and a bonus is given based on the gross profit of the company. We appreciate our employees’ hard work, and reflect this with our profit share plan as well as the opportunity to pay overtime.
Our work is specific to the United States. Most of what we build is commercial or industrial since these are the area’s most likely to demand a lot of steel in their construction. We also carry out residential construction, although our focus is primarily commercial and industrial.
When you enjoy what you do, you put more of your heart and passion into it. This is why we try to make as many aspects of everyday life at Tectonix Steel fun as well as functional. Our 6-month meetings are in interesting locations and we make independent research into a fun and inspiring adventure.
We believe that getting together as a team is important to remember why we are doing what we do in our everyday work lives, so the first Friday of every month, we put on a barbecue at Tectonix Steel. In addition, each time an employee has a yearly anniversary with our company, we take them out to their favorite restaurant, just to thank them for being part of our company family.
Our CEO, Jason, is a down-to-earth guy who developed Tectonix Steel to offer the industry cutting edge designs and ideas, as well as to develop ongoing relationships with clients and he values relationship building with his employees in the same way.
Fitness Program. We know that fitness is important. For the mind to be as sharp as it can be, the body also needs to be energized and comfortable. This is why we have regular breaks for calisthenics. This Japanese tradition to encourage health and wellness in office workers has been shown to be simple and effective. It is amazing what a little bit of deliberate breathing and stretching can do to open up your mind and relax your body during the workday. Although optional, we encourage all of our employees to take part, should you feel the need to take a break from your working day and reconnect with your body and mind to feel refreshed for the remainder of the day.
As part of our efforts to help with our local community, we offer our employees a service day, which consists of one day off, fully paid, to service a charity of their choosing. We believe in giving back and encourage employees to take an active role in their community.
Tectonix Steel believes that by investing in you and your family, we are investing in our community that we all call home.
Our job is to set you up for success, then get out of your way. No wasted time in unnecessary meetings. No micromanaging. Just the support and products you need to excel in your career. Get training, ongoing support, and the tools you need from the best.
DELIVERING WHAT MATTERS
JASON CHAMBERLAIN, CEO
From swinging hammers to calling the shots, every moment in Jason Chamberlain’s personal and professional life has given him the tools and experience necessary to lead Tectonix Steel into the future.
Growing up on a small-town farm, the third of eight children, Jason learned the value of hard work and responsibility at a young age. He looked up to his father, a construction worker, and took steps to follow his path by completing drafting school in 1996.
By 2002, Jason felt inspired to lead people—maybe it was the ‘older sibling’ in him that was used to being in charge. So, he studied management and in 2003 decided to start his own business, Tectonix Steel. The recession posed unique challenges and taught him there was more to running a business than he thought, so he completed his MBA in 2014.
A craftsman from a young age, Jason has a knack for taking his life’s experiences–from swinging a hammer at age 16 to leading teams as an adult—and creating something greater than the sum of its parts. While he will always be passionate about building buildings, he is equally energized by building up people and helping them realize their potential.
Jason is grateful to his mentors for helping him realize his own potential. His father instilled work ethic, while several mentors and consultants were sources of inspiration.
Jason pays his gratitude forward by looking for ways to help people who are in poverty. He is presently working on helping people in the Philippines start local businesses to help improve their standards of living.
On the home front, when Jason isn’t chasing his kids around, playing fetch with his dogs, flying Cessnas, or playing the harmonica (yes), he is working on his personal goal to improve his physical fitness and health and participate in a 5K terrain race challenge.
Never one to stop learning and growing, Jason is currently pursuing his PhD in psychology with an emphasis on industrial psychology.
“In my 8 years here in Tectonix, I found Tectonix as my Home, I speak nothing but good. Employees treat each other as families. We may disagree on something specially at work but at the end of the day, we are friends and we respect each others opinions and point of views.”
“I’ve been working in Tectonix for 9 years and the evident reason why I’m still here is that the management did not just focus on the profit/ earnings of the company but also cares about their people. Regularly the management see to it that they give time to bond with their people and get the ideas and concerns of everyone. The management is also considerate with everyone, even for some personal issues and situations. They also help each employee to grow. Compensation wise, we can feel that we are rewarded and appreciated.”
“Tectonix Steel has been the first and only company I have worked for where personal development is promoted at such a high level. Through on the job training, meetings and R&D practices I have learned many new and valuable skills. The Company is also filled with knowledgeable and skilled team members who are willing to teach and learn when opportunities arise.”
“Having worked in multiple industries–military, public education, and financial services, I can easily say that being a part of Tectonix Steel is like being home.

I like the direction we are heading and aspiring to become. I really appreciate the challenge to keep up with the growth. It compels me to develop my skills so I can be better!”
“I have only been at Tectonix Steel for about two years and it has been great! They provide equal opportunities to anyone interested, flexible working arrangements for employees with special needs, performance based benefits and team building events. The management considers each idea you give and is open to constructive criticism. Most of all, they highly value you and your family as an integral part of the company’s future and growth.”
“Tectonix Steel has top tier employees, especially in the management and leadership roles. Tectonix values personal and workplace growth and accommodates the growth with company and individual training, in addition to Research and development. My opinion matters and I am treated with respect. The company is family oriented and often sponsors activities that include the families of employees.”
RESEARCH & DEVELOPMENT
At Tectonix Steel, we believe in ongoing education and self-driven learning. We know that in order to be cutting edge in our field, we need employees who are inspired to keep learning and involved in their own educational process. In this industry, staying up-to-date and aware of the latest research and trends is absolutely essential to our success. We carry out weekly research meetings to ensure we stay ahead of the game in our industry and support one another in our development within the company.
Every week, we have a meeting in which we take an hour to learn about any topic that we want to understand more thoroughly. These searches don’t need to be about detailing or steel. The topic can be about anything that may interest you, with some of our previous searches including sports and psychology.
These searches are then posted to our intranet. The following day, we read the posts, and vote for the research that has the most impact for others within the workplace. Whoever wins the vote, has their name put into a raffle three times, with the raffle being drawn at the end of the month for a chance to win a cash prize.
This program has more benefits than just encouraging people to learn about what interests them. The process also helps develop skills using our internal network. Employees learn how to access information that they need, so the next time they have a question on a topic, they have the answers at their fingertips.
We have a clear structure to our operations department within Tectonix Steel. We have various project managers who oversee detailers. We have a sales team who help attain new contracts as well as looking after our existing clients. We also have a finance department and a document control chain for printing electronic organization of files. Our IT department keeps our computers up and running and ensures our system does not falter.
Our industry-specific activities are run on the most advanced structural software 3D modeling technology, Tekla. Using Trimble’s Tekla Modeling Technology allows us to design the steel construction of buildings efficiently and effectively. We also employ Navisworks, which allows us to combine 3D designs, and review the mockup using a set of tools including comments, redlining, viewpoint and measurements.
In addition, we utilize Bluebeam solutions, allowing us to create, edit, markup and collaborate virtually in our designs.
We are also completely BIM compliant, utilizing Building Information modeling (BIM) technology.
Benefits of BIM include:
- Virtual Design
- Avoid Losing Time
- Increased Accuracy and Efficiency
- Compatible with Navisworks
Tectonix Steel loves to promote from within our ranks. We’ve found that some of our best managers are hired right out of college. Through our dedicated training and education programs, new employees learn what it takes to succeed in this industry and with Tectonix Steel.

You will learn what sets Tectonix Steel apart from others within the industry. Depending on your specialty within the company and your experience with detailing, you’ll be assigned to the appropriate training procedure and team.

At this training, you will be addressed by the CEO, who will reiterate the goals, values, and strategic anchors of the company, as well as remind us all of where Tectonix Steel has been and where we are going.
Tectonix Steel values education. While a degree isn’t necessary to be competent in this field, we believe that furthering education makes us better at what we do.
