Padnos, with headquarters in Holland, Michigan, has announced the acquisition of Regal Recycling, Howell, Michigan. According to a news release about the purchase, the acquisition includes two locations: the one in Howell, which Padnos will operate, and one in Whitmore Lake, Michigan, which GLR Advanced Recycling, headquartered in Roseville, Michigan, will operate. Padnos acquired a significant interest in GLR in the summer of 2018.
The purchase of Regal Recycling gives the Padnos-GLR partnership 26 locations throughout Michigan.
Padnos President Jonathan Padnos says, “This move furthers regional consolidation and allows us to better serve our customers throughout Michigan. Padnos views Howell as a vibrant and growing community, and we want to be part of that growth.”
Vern Brockway owned Regal Recycling since 1993. At that time, the company operated a single location in Howell. In 2011, Regal opened its recycling center in Whitmore Lake, near Ann Arbor. The 4.5-acre facility includes a 10,000 square-foot warehouse, according to the company’s website.
The Regal facilities offer ferrous and nonferrous metals recycling as well as auto parts salvage and electronics recycling.
