Padnos acquires Regal Recycling

The purchase includes two locations in Michigan.

July 1, 2019

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.
