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.
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.
