This latest funding round comes as Reibus enjoys its third, and strongest, year with revenue up sevenfold over 2020, the company said.

“Industrial material such as steel and aluminum is a $2 trillion market globally, but remains highly fragmented, which can create supply-chain disruptions and price volatility,” said Andrew Straub, Investment Director at SoftBank Investor Advisers. “We believe Reibus is helping to solve this challenge with its independent, SaaS-enabled marketplace, which provides greater transparency and flexibility to buyers and sellers alike.”

Reibus plans to use the funds raised to grow the marketplace and use of mobile app tools, accelerate new financial and logistical products, and expand its European business with new teams and resources.

Founded in 2018, Reibus’ goal is to use its advanced technology and industry knowledge to revolutionize supply-chain efficiency by shortening lead-times, reducing inventory, and streamlining finance and freight services. “We’re excited to add SoftBank Investment Advisers to our team of world-class investors,” said John Armstrong, Reibus founder and CEO.
