AF Steel has evolved as Arizona’s premier steel fabricator and erector. Founded in 1980, our company is recognized for its innovation and forward-thinking mindset, employing a leadership team whose combined experience equals nearly a century for planning, designing, fabricating, project managing and erecting some of the most impressive structures in the state.

Bill Dehaven


DeHaven, who started out in our fabrication shop, has earned his way to the top spot because of his strong industry knowledge and leadership skills. Bill’s short and long-term vison for growth contributed to the company’s plans to build a new steel fabrication plant that sits on 6.5 acres on the Gila River Indian Reservation. This new facility, just off of Wild Horse Pass on the east side of the I-10 Freeway opposite of Firebird Raceway, will provide a fully automated manufacturing plant that will be required to be the high production, high volume fabricator that his vision requires. The automated beam lines and the layout of the new facility will deliver the high level of efficiencies that are required to stay competitive in the structural steel market for the next 20 years. The expected completion and move in date of the new facility is January 2021.

DeHaven’s approach is to provide the complete steel package to his general contracting clients from in-house detailing and shop drawings, complete in-house fabrication along with his
own field erection crews.

Bill is married to his wife Guadalupe for over 28 years and have 4 adult-aged children together, Bill was born and raised in Arizona and is an avid hunter who is well known in the local hunting circles.
