The postwar metals industry boom in the United States, coupled with visionary leadership, allowed us to pursue a decades-long course of expansion through growth and acquisition. This paved the way for our IPO in 1994, which allowed continued strategic growth in terms of location, products, and customers. Since then, Reliance has completed more than 55 acquisitions and risen to become the largest metals service center in North America. Through a network of more than 300 locations in 40 states and twelve countries outside of the United States, the Company provides value-added metals processing services and distributes a full line of over 100,000 metal products to more than 125,000 customers in a broad range of industries.
Reliance Steel & Aluminum Co. became a Fortune 500 company in 2007 and has remained on that list ever since. Over 75 years after our humble beginnings, we continue to celebrate, affirm, and encourage our core values, both in our business practices and our local communities, keeping our family of companies successful.
