Advantage Metals Recycling (AMR), headquartered in Kansas City, Mo., has purchased the assets and business of Nuelle’s 4X4 Salvage. Nuelle 4X4, founded in 1986, operates a scrap metal processing facility and a full-service used auto parts store in Higginsville, Mo. AMR is wholly owned by The David J. Joseph Co. (DJJ), based in Cincinnati. DJJ’s parent company is Nucor Corp.
According to AMR, the new location is consistent with the company’s growth strategy and demonstrates David J. Joseph’s commitment to expanding its existing regional recycling platforms. 
AMR, with more than 350 employees, operates 15 recycling facilities in Kansas and Missouri. AMR’s Higginsville recycling center buys automobiles, scrap iron and steel as well as common household nonferrous scrap metal items like aluminum cans and other aluminum, stainless steel, copper and brass products. The company also sells used auto parts on site.  
DJJ operates a total of 69 scrap recycling facilities, and nine U-Pull-&-Pay self-service used auto parts stores in the United States.
