About Us

Original business was started by Dutch Medford in October 1989 as Security Shack in Hanapepe, Hawaii.  In 1992, Security Shack expanded the business to offer custom steel building material packages with Prefabricated Arched Steel Buildings being the main product marketed along with steel building material accessories.  Security Shack was incorporated in May 2002 and became Medford Enterprises, Inc. (MEI) adding custom steel frame home material packages to it's product line.

MEI now supplies steel material packages for clients from their Engineered Drawings with a full line of Custom Fabricated Wood & Steel Frame Storm Shelters, Wood & Steel Frame Home Material Packages, and Commercial Steel Buildings & Accessories. 

MEI’s standard commercial building material packages range in size from 20’ to 500’ widths, up to 150’ clear spans, up to 24’ high side walls, unlimited lengths, carry high wind & snow loads, are fire, earthquake, and Termite resistant.  Custom multi-storied commercial building packages can be quoted upon request.  MEI can supply “Red Iron” Rigid frames, “Hot Dipped” Galvanized Rigid frames, and all Galvanized light gauge steel frame packages; materials can be shipped worldwide.

All light gauge Galvanized steel framing materials shipped has the heavier G60 & G90 Galvanized coatings that offers a longer life expectancy.  Light gauge steel allows up to 30’ clear spans in homes and offices for more wide-open space designs and is five times stronger than traditional wood framed structures.

MEI has contracted with companies on the mainland for all deliveries of Custom Fabricated Wood & Steel Frame Storm Shelters, Wood & Steel Frame Home, and Commercial Steel Building Material Packages ordered to be manufactured and shipped out of their outlets on the mainland directly to most job sites.  These new shipping points offers MEI’s clients in Hawaii, the Pacific Basin, and delivery points on the mainland huge savings on freight costs on all containers and flat rack shipments.
