Culture at Reliance Steel


Over and above our business practices, it's how we conduct ourselves that truly matters, and that depends entirely on who we are. We work hard to improve ourselves, learn from one another, and participate in the communities in which we live and raise our families. Living out our core beliefs in each interaction with one another as well as with our customers and suppliers is one of the secrets of Reliance’s longstanding success. It is both the individual and combined strength of our Family of Companies that make Reliance the industry leader.

Corporate Responsibility

Our corporate responsibility is not only to our investors, but also to our people and our communities. It is an inherent accountability to shareholders, employees, our communities, and ethical business practices that motivates and anchors us. Our responsibility to shareholders requires a diligent commitment to excellence ensuring sustainable profitability. We want to inspire, develop, and ensure the well-being of our employees. This same commitment to excellence also requires that we set the highest standards for business practices, adhere to regulations that protect the environment, give back to our communities, and ensure a safe and productive workplace for our employees.
