About Company

We are interested in any offers from coast to coast. We can promise competitive bids, prompt payment and quick removal of inventories.

Black Rose Steel and Trading (Black Rose) was founded by Ann Hacker in 1990 to fill an industry need for low priced surplus steel, mill overruns and seconds in the Southern United States.

Ms. Hacker, a St. Louis native, relocated to Texas in 1980 where she soon found herself working for a large steel supply company.Quickly Ann moved into management and subsequently served successfully for 10 years working for several local and national steel companies. 



In 1990 she decided to venture out on her own and founded Black Rose Steel and Trading.

Ann presently serves as president and principal operator at Black Rose. She is credited with coining the term “brown and straight” as a complimentary term for surplus steel. Ann owes her success in part to many of the extraordinary American steel industry legends she formed bonds with over her 20 plus years in the steel business.

The History

From humble beginnings in the Hacker family home, the company has steadily grown its inventory level, supply capability and clientele through firm commitments to safely serving customers with integrity, quality and economy.
