Los Angeles Origins 

In 1955, Marvin Totten established the first Totten Tubes warehouse in South Central Los Angeles. With minimal equipment and one employee, Marvin carved the Totten name into the industry order by order.

Growth as a Domestic Steel Supplier 

In 1960, the company built a new facility in East Los Angeles where it would have more room for a larger staff and a growing inventory. Bringing his three sons into the business (Dave in ’63, Jeff in ’65, and Tracy in ‘76) Marvin retired from daily duties in 1992 and cheered on his business from the boardroom.

Totten Tubes has grown regionally over the last few decades: Totten Tubes San Diego branch (1983), Totten Tubes Headquarters moved to Azusa (1999), a Totten Tubes branch in Phoenix (2000), Totten Tubes of Northern California (2011), and our most recently opened Totten Tubes branch in Vancouver, WA.
