Continuing Iron Age's Century-Long Tradition

Manufacturing Industry

If you’re buying a lot of steel and processing it then you’re generating enough steel scrap to seek a return on it. Fabricators and other metal processing facilities have left over steel from the manufacturing process that can be sold to scrap yards, dealers, brokers or even a local mill or foundry. This type of prime scrap can usually be classified into either No. 1 busheling or No. 1 dealer bundles. Fastmarkets SPB has these grades available at a regional level.
