The David J. Joseph Co. (DJJ) has announced plans to consolidate the management responsibility of its four Texas Port Recycling (TPR) facilities with its Advantage Metals Recycling (AMR) unit, headquartered in Kansas City, Mo.

In conjunction with the move, many of TPR’s senior managers are leaving the company and TPR’s Houston headquarters will close. In a statement, DJJ says the consolidation is part of the company’s ongoing efforts to enhance operational efficiencies.

TPR and AMR are wholly owned by DJJ, a Cincinnati-based subsidiary of Nucor Corp., Charlotte, N.C. TPR has 115 employees and four recycling facilities. Advantage Metals Recycling has more than 350 employees and 15 recycling facilities.

DJJ’s family of companies operates nearly 70 scrap recycling and mill service facilities, plus nine self-serve used auto part U-Pull-&-Pay stores.
