TORONTO, Dec. 17, 2021 /CNW/ - Russel Metals Inc. (TSX: RUS) announces that it has extended its $450 million credit facility with a syndicate of banks led by RBC Capital Markets.

Martin L. Juravsky, Executive Vice President and CFO of Russel commented, "We are very pleased to have the ongoing support of our long-standing lenders, extend the term and thereby maintain our strong financial flexibility.
