We are not TMS International (formerly Tube City IMS), and have no relationship to TMS International.
Please visit www.tmsinternational.com for information about TMS.
We also do NOT sell tubes or pipes! I know this seems obvious, but we keep getting inquiries (especially from people in other countries), so knock it off.
Why is the website called "Tube City Online"? Because McKeesport was once the world capital of steel pipe manufacturing and was known as the "Tube City." McKeesport also has a "Tube City Cafe" and a "Tube City Beer Distributing," and even had a "Tube City Brewing Co." and a semi-pro baseball team called the "McKeesport Tubers."
