Allmetal Recycling, a scrap metal recycling facility headquartered in Wichita, Kansas, has expanded its operations in the area with the purchase of the Wichita operations of SOS Metals. The acquired company’s primary focus is the commercial nonferrous business, with a significant focus on the aerospace sector.

Clint Cornejo, co-owner of Allmetal, says the acquired assets will give the company access to more aluminum, titanium and high-temp alloy, metals that are typically generated by the aerospace industry.

“The addition of this operation and its staff are a great fit for our company,” Cornejo adds. “It will strengthen our position in the aerospace alloy market, with the added volume benefiting our entire customer base.”

In addition to Wichita, Allmetal has a location in Newton, Kansas. The company provides a variety of services, including recycling, certified destruction, dismantling and industry asset liquidation services.

“The additional line of processing equipment, along with our design capabilities and field service technicians, provide our customers a full service provider for their metal and alloy recycling needs,” Cornejo says.

Cornejo says the company serves industrial and retail clients and is looking to grow its operations outside of the Wichita area. “We started as a retail center, and are now looking to grow our business.”

Through the company’s locations, it handles ferrous and nonferrous metals.
