Authorities say a man died Monday morning after an industrial accident in Gilbert.
Fire officials said they were called to 620 W Commerce Avenue Monday around 7:40 A.M. in response to an accident at S & H Steel Company.
Paramedics treated a man who was then taken to a nearby trauma center.
Gilbert Police spokesman Darrell Kruger said the man has died. Krueger said their units are assisting in the investigation of the incident.
There are few details available at this time, said Krueger.
In 1983, four friends decided to combine their expertise by merging their two small steel companies into one: S+H Steel. They began small, but they didn't stay that way for long. What started with a few friends in a garage, has since grown into a large, award-winning operation near the heart of downtown Gilbert, Arizona.
Today, S+H Steel has more than 100 employees who process 100 tons of steel a week for large commercial projects, government contracts, and more.
S+H Steel also holds the distinction of belonging to a small handful of steel companies in Arizona who are AISC certified in both steel fabrication and erection.
