A History in Steel Tubing
Los Angeles OriginsIn 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.
