Parties
“It was a pleasure to work with the Oaklins Heritage team to advise our company in this transaction. Their staff of former executives of the industry and knowledge of service center operations led us to several opportunities. Their expertise and thoroughness helped our company navigate through the transaction process. We are very excited to join the Reliance family of companies and are looking forward to the continued growth opportunities to Cooksey Steel.
