Olympic Steel, Inc. was founded in 1954 in Cleveland, Ohio. By 1987, the company began a path of growth, taking advantage of many acquisition and expansion opportunities. (See our timeline below.)
While our company has grown and evolved significantly, one thing hasn't changed. Olympic Steel has stayed true to our founders' original vision of developing long-lasting relationships with our employees, our suppliers and our customers.
On May 23, 2013, we mourned the passing of our founder, Sol Siegal. Olympic Steel will continue to honor Mr. Siegal as a visionary leader and dedicated philanthropist by maintaining and expanding upon the high standards of business excellence and social responsibility that he embodied throughout his life.
