About Yard


Pacific is 100% employee-owned. When you do business with your local branch, you’re doing business with a friend or a neighbor. Our success is wholly determined by your success. Being an integral part of the community is important to us, so is helping to make our communities better places to live.

A major contributor to that business practice is how best to serve you. Amenities such as drive-through recycling, pick-up service and roll-off containers all have you in mind. Rest assured Pacific Steel & Recycling will continually strive to meet your needs in the best way possible.

When it comes to steel products, you’ll be “hard-pressed” (a little Pacific humor) to find another company that offers what we do. Our Ag/Livestock products are constructed to meet whatever your need may be. From bull gates to barbed wire, rest assured you’ll get the highest caliber product on the market.

There’s one other thing we’d like to mention: the future.

Not ours as a company, but “ours as a planet.” We are committed to continually pursuing knowledge and practices that lead to more environmentally friendly and ecologically responsible decisions for us, our employees, our families and our children. Protecting our resources is not just doing business, it’s just doing what’s right.


Pacific Steel & Recycling is driven by the desire to develop long-term, successful relationships with our customers, vendors, employees, communities and the mills, treating each as a vital business partner.

We strive to:

Offer superior customer service.

Maintain neat, well-organized, user-friendly work places.

Listen and respond to the needs of each business partner.

Make safety a top priority.

Treat our employees as our number one asset.

Uphold the highest levels of integrity, honesty, and ethical behavior.

Show genuine concern for our communities and contribute to their advancement.

Realizing the full potential of this vision will result in a thriving business that will leave a legacy of achievement not only for future employees but for customers and other business partners as well.


Pacific’s road to becoming a steel and recycling giant began as a one-man operation in Spokane, Wash. Joe Thiebes emigrated from Germany in the 1880s and followed his family’s business tradition of trading hides and furs. Soon, Thiebes sent his son, also named Joe, to the wilds of Montana. And in the early 1920s, the younger Thiebes officially founded Pacific Hide & Fur Depot in Great Falls.

During World War I, the company expanded beyond furs and hides into collecting ferrous and nonferrous scrap. And this scrap metals venture eventually led the firm to branch out in the 1950s into sales of new steel products. The Thiebes family business continued into the third generation, with another son – again named Joe – joining forces with his father as the company steadily opened additional locations under the Pacific Hide & Fur name.

The Thiebes family owned the company and the senior Joe Thiebes continued to serve as chairman of the board until his death in 1988, though he wasn’t involved in Pacific’s day-to-day management. The end of daily family involvement in the business came with the death of the younger Joe Thiebes in 1982. However, Pacific is dedicated to carrying on the Thiebes family tradition of “shooting straight”.

Today, Pacific is an employee-owned corporation with 46 branch offices in Washington, Idaho, Utah, Nevada, Wyoming, South Dakota, North Dakota, Colorado, Montana, and Alberta, Canada.

PACIFIC STEEL AND RECYCLING IS COMMITTED to pursuing knowledge and practices that lead to more environmentally friendly and ecologically responsible decisions and lifestyles, which help to protect the environment and sustain natural resources for current and future generations. A lead practice in this effort is keeping recyclable material out of our solid waste streams. This is accomplished through trade relationships with communities and the people we serve. This partnership is vital in reclaiming valuable secondary materials for reuse into new products, conserving natural resources and making better use of landfill capacity. By purchasing products at the end of their life and processing them back into raw materials, we reduce need for virgin materials, such as iron ore trees and other natural resources. For example:

  • Did you know that recycling one automobile conserves 2,500 pounds of iron ore, 1,400 pounds of coal and 120 pounds of limestone? In partnership with our customers, we recycle tens of thousands of automobiles each year.
  • Recycling one automobile saves the energy equivalent of 500 gallons of gasoline. Annually, with community support, we conserve over a million gallons of this precious resource.
  • Recycling aluminum saves 95% of the energy needed to make new aluminum (including bauxite ore and electricity). With local backing, we recycle tens of millions of pounds of aluminum per year.

Beyond energy savings, there are equally significant environmental savings as well, including air emissions, water pollution, water usage and mining waste generation: For example:

  • Did you know that for every ton of recycled paper produced (in lieu of raw manufacturing), over 50 pounds of pollution effluent is kept out of the air? In partnership with our customers, we recycle several tons of paper each year.
  • Utilizing scrap steel (in lieu of raw manufacturing) reduces CO2 emissions by 58% and reduces water-related wastes by nearly 70%. Annually, with community support, we recycle hundreds of thousands of tonnage of ferrous scrap metal.
  • Copper mining wastes constitute the largest quantity of metal mining and processing wastes in the United States. With local backing, we help to eliminate these wastes by recycling over a million pounds of copper per year.

Pacific Steel and Recycling is dedicated to using new innovation and technology in maximizing resource recovery and “clean processing.” With an environmental conscience in mind, we are reducing the operational impact of fluids and contaminants in inflow materials by installing “state of the art” drainage racks and improving housekeeping methods. In addition, we are constantly developing best management practices and instructive policies to prevent pollution, conserve resources and mentor stakeholders on how to pursue and achieve similar results. Together, with our loyal customers, we will continue balancing economic growth and environmental stewardship through an understanding that everything we need for our survival and well-being depends, either directly or indirectly, on our natural environment. And by “being green”, we’re creating and maintaining sustainability for the conditions under which we and nature exist.
