Reibus International, Atlanta, has acquired the assets of Blue Steel LLC, which operates Metalmixx. Like Reibus, Metalmixx is an online platform to facilitate the purchase and sale of excess carbon steel.
“We’re very excited about the Metalmixx acquisition,” said Reibus CEO John Armstrong. “The Metalmixx marketplace, like Reibus, provides an independent web-enabled solution to improve the efficiency of buying and selling industrial metals.”
Reibus will rapidly transition Metalmixx customers to the Reibus platform, and Metalmixx will cease operations. By transitioning Metalmixx’s users to Reibus, former Metalmixx customers will benefit the advantages of Reibus’ platform, including a proprietary database of industrial metals for sale on an independent cloud-based platform, user tools such as trade credit solutions and complete freight services, security and anonymity for all transactions, all backed by an experienced sales and marketing team, Reibus claims.
Key Metalmixx personnel have agreed to consult with Reibus to ensure a smooth transition for all Metalmixx customers.
