Metalico Inc., Cranford, N.J., has opened its newest scrap metal recycling facility in the Greater Pittsburgh area. The location, in Conway, Pa., is the company’s sixth scrap metal yard in the Pittsburgh area.
The new site formerly housed Skip’s Recycling, a subsidiary of Three Rivers Scrap Metal Inc. Metalico acquired certain accounts and equipment from Three Rivers Scrap to set up the new facility, but did not purchase Skip’s itself or assume any of the liabilities of Skip’s or Three Rivers Scrap Metal, the company says in a news release.
The newly acquired facility is situated near Metalico’s auto shredder in Pittsburgh. The company says the Conway site will provide it with the opportunity to strengthen its penetration into the local scrap market and augment its scrap flow in the Pittsburgh market.
The new facility will be operated under the company’s Metalico Pittsburgh subsidiary. Other Pennsylvania locations operating under the subsidiary include scrap metal yards in Neville Island, Brownsville, Hadley, Uniontown and Sharon. The subsidiary also operates a feeder yard in Colliers, W.Va.
Three Rivers Scrap Metal will continue to operate its main nonferrous yard in Pittsburgh.
