The stainless steel recycling firm ELG Metals Inc., a part of ELG-Haniel, has made a number of personnel changes to its U.S. operations. The company says teh reorganization of its U.S. staff follows its long-term strategy as well as the integration of the company’s recent acquisitions.

ELG-Haniel is a stainless steel scrap and special alloys trading firm headquartered in Duisburg, Germany. The company has more than 40 operational locations throughout the world.

In announcing the changes, ELG says the moves will allow it to continue growing. The management changes, ELG adds, also will allow the company to further develop its super alloys and titanium businesses while still focusing on customer needs, costs and quality.

Tommy Morton, the former head of production of ABS Alloys & Metals USA LLC (ABS), Winston-Salem, North Carolina, will take over as general manager of ELG Utica Alloys (Hartford) Inc. He replaces David Borg, who has retired following nearly 40 years with ELG and predecessor companies.

At ELG’s Utica Alloys Inc. facility in Herkimer, New York, Fred Schweizer, ELG Utica Alloys vice president of production, will take over the additional responsibility of general manager of ELG Utica Alloys. His responsibilities will include profit/loss performance, daily operations and costs management.

At ABS’ Winston-Salem facility, Zach Kincaid has been named operational manager. He will be in charge of price policies, daily operations and costs management.
