Membership in the Steel Framing Industry Association improves your individual competitive edge and increases market opportunities through a more competitive environment for cold-formed steel framing.  The strength of over 1,300 members - representing steel mills; coil coaters and processors; stud, connector and equipment manufacturers; panelizers and fabricators; engineers; material suppliers/distributors; and framing contractors— provides a uniquely broad membership that enables us to identify issues and opportunities, along with effective solutions.

With over 1,300 members, SFIA brings together the many sectors of the cold- formed steel framing industry. What can be difficult for one company to achieve on their own is possible when many work together.


  • One of the largest areas of focus by the SFIA has been to reverse the gains made by the wood industry in the building codes through state and local legislative outreach. Our Executive team is working with many levels of government to ensure steel framing is given sufficient consideration by decision makers.
  • Our Technical Director actively participates in the codes and standards development process, including the International Building Code, ASHREA and many others.
