About V&S Schuler

V&S Schuler Utilities Group supplies products and services to the electrical utility market, rural electrical cooperatives and manufacturing industries. The group consists of four companies: V&S Schuler Engineering, V&S Schuler Tubular Products, V&S Schuler Packaging, and V&S Capital Steel.

Founded in Newark, Ohio, in 1939, the Charles E. Schuler Company played an integral role in the development of the United States’ power grid, fabricating structural steel for the upstart electrical utility industry. Several years after the company relocated to Canton, Ohio, in 1988, Voigt & Schweitzer purchased it and expanded operations as V&S Schuler Engineering, Inc.

In addition to supplying the electrical utility industry with fabricated steel, V&S Schuler Engineering branched out to fabricate steel for infrastructure, conveyor systems, concrete imbeds, and other industries.

In 1995, V&S Schuler Tubular Products, LLC, opened in Muskogee, Okla. to provide tapered poles for the electrical utility companies, co-ops, municipalities and other companies.

V&S Schuler started providing complete packaging services to the electrical utility industry in 2006, when we purchased Clark Substations of Birmingham, Alabama. V&S Schuler Packaging offers all the materials and components required to construct substations and high voltage facilities.

Hill & Smith Holdings PLC,, an international group of companies headquartered in the United Kingdom and listed on the London Stock Exchange, has been our parent company since purchasing V&S Schuler in 2007.

In 2018, V&S Schuler Engineering opened a new facility in Burton, Ohio, near Cleveland, to manufacture tapered poles.

V&S Schuler Engineering purchased a manufacturing facility about three miles from the company’s Canton, Ohio, headquarters in 2021. The 5.5-acre property features two buildings totaling about 76,000 square feet for manufacturing and 4,000 square feet of office space. Our Shipping Department began operations at this location in 2022.

In January 2024, V&S Schuler Utilities acquired Capital Steel Service in Trenton, New Jersey, and began operations there as V&S Capital Steel, giving us a fourth fabrication facility.
