About UsDan Butler

Graduated from the University of Colorado at Boulder with a degree in Sociology in 1999.  Soon thereafter he began his career in the flat-rolled steel industry learning the business from the ground up running the shipping and receiving department as well as the materials testing laboratory.  It was from there he gained valuable experience on the slitting and packaging lines, learning the fundamentals of the steel itself.  The corporate office came next where Dan learned the inner workings of every department, from logistics to quality and production.  Finally, he graduated into the sales department where he excelled.  Starting with only a deep understanding of the business, Dan was able to generate nearly $3,000,000 a month in sales revenue at a healthy profit.  In 2004, Dan saw an opportunity to venture out on his own and was able to start Rapid Metals, LLC.  In its first year, Rapid Metals, LLC did nearly $5,000,000 in sales and it hasn’t looked back.
