SA Recycling LLC, based in Orange, California, has made two acquisitions that it says will help it strengthen its business through the West.

The first deal involves the acquisition of Arizona Recycling Corp. (ARC), headquartered in Phoenix. ARC operates four ferrous and nonferrous yards in the Phoenix and Mesa areas.

The newly acquired Arizona facilities will act as feeder yards for SA Recycling’s Phoenix shredder operation. SA says none of the ARC facilities operate large-scale ferrous processing equipment and the deal was based on a long-term relationship between the two companies.

The second acquisition is of Newell Recycling Co. of El Paso in that Texas city. The deal, the first for the company in Texas, also was the culmination of a long-term relationship between SA Recycling and Scott Newell, the owner of Newell Recycling El Paso. The Texas scrap metal facility includes a shredding operation that will support SA Recycling’s existing business, the company says. 

SA Recycling says the acquisition of the Newell Recycling Co. of El Paso is intended to supplement its existing operations and to add to its feedstock supply. The addition of the shredder brings the number of auto shredders SA Recycling operates to seven.

Both acquisitions were effective June 1, 2014, with the acquired companies to be renamed as SA Recycling.

SA Recycling operates 50 recycling facilities in California, Arizona, Nevada and now Texas. The company processes and supplies ferrous and nonferrous scrap metal to the domestic and international market.
