Using the Best Technology
Converting scrap metal into a valuable replacement for virgin raw materials, while still protecting the environment, takes more than hard work. It takes the most innovative technology available.
Our ferrous recycling processes utilize high efficiency shredders, balers, shears and sorting equipment
Our nonferrous recycling processes include baling, wire recovery, shearing, accurately sorting alloys, custom packaging and toll conversion arrangements
Our sophisticated sortation system uses state-of-the-art technology to ensure that virtually every ounce of metal is extracted during the recycling process…not sent to landfills
Bulk Scrap Analyzers
Our patented on-line bulk scrap analyzers accurately determine the chemistry of scrap grades, reducing the variability in scrap charges. These analyzers allow us to certify the content of key elements critical to our customers
Computerized Non-Ferrous Purchasing
We use kiosk touch screens in our warehouse that are tied to the scales. These kiosks generate a bar coded ticket that you take to the cashier for prompt payment of your nonferrous materials. It’s a streamlined system that eliminates manual paperwork, and speeds up the purchasing and payment process for each supplier.
