W. Silver Recycling of El Paso, Texas, has opened a consolidation center and trading office in the Apodaca suburb of Monterrey, Mexico. The W. Silver Consolidation center will service industrial businesses within the company’s existing supply chain as well as new accounts, says Lane Gaddy, president of the company.

Gaddy says the consolidation center will handle all nonferrous, ferrous, plastics and e-waste from industrial accounts. The site will house limited processing of materials, Gaddy adds, with compaction of materials being a regular process.

The industrial park has a truck scale and a 30-square-foot warehouse with multiple bays, a large office and secured storage, according to Gaddy.

Material collected in the region may be transported to the new center, or to another W. Silver facility, such as the McAllen, Texas, location situated about two hours away and which provides logistic support. Gaddy says the new Apodaca facility will offer direct  shipments to consumers in Mexico and the U.S. in addition to W. Silver’s own processing locations.

W. Silver, which has been in operation for more than 90 years, describes itself as the only full service recycler on the U.S.-Mexico border.

The company’s headquarters location in El Paso is minutes from the U.S.-Mexico border, according to the company, and all of its locations reportedly have rail service and are located within a mile of an interstate. One corporate mission is that each location be able to provide maximum returns by shipping direct to mills and eliminating intermediaries, according to W. Silver.
