At Continental Alloys & Services, we believe leadership is more than a title on a business card. It's how we work every day.
Continental's roots as a business began with an ability to forge trust-based relationships and connections. The company owes its continued growth and global success to a four-decade record of proven ability to deliver on its promises: honesty, reliability, premium-quality materials, logistical excellence and a deep understanding of customers' requirements.
Continental's experienced department heads, managers and executives come from a globe-spanning variety of cultures and professional backgrounds. But they share a commitment to quality and an approachable leadership style that sets the tone for Continental's employees around the world.
They share a value system of integrity, openness and trust that puts people and service first.
Leadership. It's not about what we say — it's what we do.

Jim has been involved in the oil and gas industry since 1975. After an engineering apprenticeship, he attended Dundee Technical College. From 1993 to 1999, Jim was in charge of Liverpool-based Asco Engineering. When the opportunity arose, he welcomed the chance to join Continental. The company's solid customer base and great relationships were a good fit for his capabilities.

When Gerry started with Continental in 1998, he was just the fourth employee of the newly opened Canadian business unit. Gerry has been an integral part of growing the business in Canada from a four-man team to a 50-person operation, with a facility on the outskirts of Calgary and a downtown office in the hub of the Canadian oil and gas market.
“I am continually amazed at the growth this industry has had in Western Canada. From the first oilfields outside of Edmonton to the huge reserves in the oil sands of today, the oil and gas industry has required a diverse infrastructure of service and supply businesses. With new technologies being introduced every year, there is a continual demand for quality steel that can meet the specifications of this industry. I have always enjoyed adapting to the changes that our clients require.”
