  • Overview

    At Triple-S Steel we live and work by our core values.  Since our inception over 50 years ago, we have followed three basic principles that are the foundation of our success: 

    Stability: All decisions made are measured in years, not quarters.

    Flexibility: Employees are encouraged to seek creative steel solutions and services that help the company thrive.

    Chemistry: We foster and nurture an entrepreneurial spirit throughout the Triple-S family. That spirit permeates our DNA.

    From a small family retail operation in Houston, our business has expanded across the US and S. America to sell over 1 Million tons per year. We supply steel for bridges, stadiums, barges and large buildings but one thing will always remain the same: We treat our customers and employees like family.

    We are seeking a motivated Finance professional to join our growing Credit department as a Financial Risk Assistant.
