Houston, TX (April 29, 2024) – BoyarMiller is pleased to announce its role in the sale of American Alloy Steel, Inc. to Reliance, Inc. (NYSE: RS). Effective April 1, 2024, Reliance acquired all the equity interests of American Alloy as well as its related real estate holdings. Headquartered in Houston, Texas, American Alloy is a leading distributor of specialty carbon and alloy steel plate and round bar in the United States, Canada, Mexico and forty other countries.

BoyarMiller has represented American Alloy since the law firm’s founding in 1990. Co-Founding Shareholder Gary Miller recalls starting on an American Alloy file on his first day on the job. “This is a legendary moment for the firm and our longstanding client,” remarked Gary Miller. “BoyarMiller has been there every step of the way for American Alloy for well over 30 years, and I am so pleased to participate in their sale to a remarkable buyer.” Over the lifetime of the relationship, numerous BoyarMiller attorneys have assisted American Alloy in various matters including corporate, employment, contracts, real estate, mergers and acquisitions, and commercial litigation.

The BoyarMiller team assisting on the sale was led by Shareholder Gary Miller and includes Shareholders Lyndsay Fincher and John Ransom, as well as Associates Mary Pilson and Jet McGuire.

BoyarMiller partnered with American Alloy Founder Art Moore, his son Pat Moore, and the entire executive leadership team for decades to collaborate on the legal implications of the business and the development of a long term strategy. BoyarMiller was often invited to participate in the company’s traditional Friday fried chicken lunch at the headquarters to discuss work and further grow the relationship. For the twelve months ended December 31, 2023, annual net sales for American Alloy were approximately $310 million.

Sadly, Art Moore passed away soon after the transaction was complete, but he was able to see his legacy continue forward with the next two generations of his family running American Alloy under Reliance’s ownership.
