Reliance acquires Georgia’s Cooksey Iron & Metal

Written by Laura Miller

Reliance Steel & Aluminum Co. has added another company to its extensive portfolio of metals service centers and processors.

Reliance announced on Feb. 2 that it has acquired Tifton, Ga.-based Cooksey Iron & Metal Co. Terms of the deal were not disclosed.

Cooksey stocks and processes finished steel products, including plates, tubing, beams, and bars, at three locations. In 2023, the company had net sales of approximately $90 million.

Cooksey will now operate as part of Reliance’s Metals USA subsidiary.

“The addition of Cooksey strengthens and expands our position in the fast-growing Southeastern market where the company is well-known for its premium customer service, quality products, and rapid delivery standards – which is in direct alignment with the Reliance model,” Reliance President and CEO Karla Lewis said.

Reliance is North America’s largest service center group, operating more than 300 locations in 40 states and 12 countries outside of the US. It is based in Scottsdale, Ariz.
