  • Reibus is the digital marketplace for the metals industry. Through our people and technology, we enable profitable growth for our customers by delivering liquidity and supply chain solutions. Reibus makes it fast and easy to buy, sell, and ship industrial metals in North America and Europe.

    About Us
  • We sell prime, excess prime, and secondary materials, along with recyclables. Our prime material comes from the original manufacturers. We buy direct from vetted and approved global manufacturers. Our excess prime is also prime material, and it comes from our large “circulating” supplier base. This is material for which its current owner doesn’t currently have a need but has no defects. Secondary material comes from our entire supplier base. It has some defects, but some buyers will have a use for it. This material is sold “as-is”, it’s priced accordingly.

  • Reibus primarily buys, sells, finances, and ships carbon steel, stainless steel, aluminum, red metals (copper, brass, bronze), and various alloys and treatments of each. Reibus works with a variety of shapes: coils, sheets, plates, pipes, long products (bars, tubes, structurals, rebars), as well as recyclables. Contact Reibus for any metal needs, as we can help with all metals, even if it’s not listed above.

  • We are passionate about making things simpler. The time and resources lost today in the metal marketplace that was experienced firsthand by our founders was simply not good enough – we had to do something. We also wanted to create a viable marketplace for prime, excess, and secondary materials. And now, recyclables!

  • Reibus’ home office is in Atlanta, GA, with additional North American offices in Hamilton, Canada, Monterrey, Mexico, and Austin, Texas. In Europe, Reibus has offices in Reims, France, DĂĽsseldorf, Germany, Norköpping, Sweden, and Dubai, UAE. We are an e-commerce company and have supplier, seller, and freight carrier relationships throughout North America and Europe.

  • We do not have any warehouses, processing equipment, or stock inventory.

  • We include a mark-up on the items that we list. Our goal is to provide sellers a better return than they can get from traditional sales and disposition methods.
