Van Steel 40th Anniversary

Since the mid 1970’s Van Steel, the name, the company has grown to become the standard by which customers purchase and companies gauge their performance. The brand Van Steel originates from John Pfanstiehl, a small Connecticut based company bought by Art Dorsett 27 years ago. Art’s passion and mechanical creativeness continues with his son Dan Dorsett, a second generation “Car Nut”. Originally rebuilding rear wheel bearings Van Steel now offers over 2,000 new and rebuilt parts. Their focus still remains in suspension, steering and brakes.  

Experience, for over 40 years Art and his team continue to listen to their customers, look for ways to improve, ask why things failed and find solutions to the failures. With each of these Experiences, Van Steel has gained valuable Knowledge needed to provide the highest quality of customer technical support in the industry. 

Passion is the fuel that drives the Van Steel team for perfection in their builds and inspires the adaptation of the new technology to the older generations. For 40+ years Van Steel’s technical partners continue to grow.  The engineering and technical expertise comes from some of the best in the industry, as we are proud of these resources, since we all share a similar automotive Passion
