Mayor visits Crest Steel

Mayor visits Crest Steel

On Monday, July 16, Cypress Mayor Douglas A. Bailey visited with Kris Farris, president and CEO of Crest Steel, and his executive team at their corporate offices located at 10833 Valley View St.

This was part of the city’s “Business Retention Attraction Creation & Expansion” program for larger sized businesses, which facilitates Bailey and city staff to visit with business leaders to learn of their service needs, and to partner with businesses for their continued success and continued residency in the city. Crest Steel was founded in 1963 by Phil Steinberg, who several years earlier played baseball for UCLA and the San Francisco Seals. Steinberg entered into a joint venture with a major Japanese trading company in 1970, and opened a Phoenix branch in the early 1970s. He then moved the company’s distribution and processing facility from Wilmington to Riverside in 1990. Crest Steel has been a major distributor of structurals since the late 1990s. Crest Steel relocated their corporate offices to Cypress in 2009.

Crest Steel is one of the leading steel distributors in the Southwestern United States. As part of the $50 billion steel service center industry, Crest Steel supplies the full spectrum of steel products. Clients include construction contractors, structural steel fabricators and manufacturers, as well as new and evolving industries such as solar and alternative energy. The company works with steel mills throughout the world to supply the highest quality products available.

Crest Steel became part of Reliance Steel and Aluminum Company in early 2007, the premier steel service center in the United States. This affiliation has given Crest Steel the opportunity to expand the company’s offerings and available inventory and reach new and larger customers throughout California, Arizona, Nevada, Utah, and New Mexico.

Crest Steel offers world-class service and one of the best steel inventories in the region. The company supply steel bar products, structural steel shapes, steel piling, steel pipe and tube, and steel plate and sheet.
