Ideal Setech is a member of the Ideal Group of companies, a family-owned and operated business conglomerate located in Detroit, Michigan that was started on a bit of luck back in 1979.
While working as general manager for Smede Son Steel in Redford, Michigan in the late 70’s, Frank Venegas bought a $150 raffle ticket at the Livingston County Builders Association Ball, an investment that at the time, he could barely afford. His ticket turned out to be lucky, and he won a brand new Cadillac Coupe DeVille d’Elegance. Venegas drove his new Cadillac for nine days before selling it for seed money to start Ideal Steel & Builders Supply LLC.
After decades of growth, Frank Venegas expanded the company to create the Ideal Group to offer full-service facility management capabilities to companies throughout North America.
Ideal Group is a family-owned, customer-focused business conglomerate located in Detroit, Michigan that focuses on delivering innovative solutions, providing maximum value in steel & construction services, high-quality facility maintenance & protection products, and top-of-the-line indirect material management.
Grossing approximately over $500 million in sales and employing more than 500 employees, the Ideal Group of companies has become a pillar to the facility management and maintenance industry as well as the Southwest Detroit community.
