SA Recycling Acquires Southern Recycling Scrap Yards
Orange California USA based SA Recycling LLC has acquired the business assets of Southern Recycling LLC, including locations in Nashville in Tennessee, which includes a shredder, and in Bowling Green and Owensboro in Kentucky. The assets were purchased from Kentucky-based Houchens Industries Inc, with the acquisition closing and becoming effective August 13. SA Recycling has retained the employees of Southern Recycling and operations continue uninterrupted under the name SA Recycling LLC. SA Recycling LLC said that the purchase will allow SA Recycling LLC to further increase its Southeast shredding and metals operations, as well as increase its scrap purchasing volumes in the area.”
In February of 2016, SA Recycling made its first entry into the Southeast scrap market when it purchased the 17 scrap processing facilities of the former Newell Recycling Southeast LLC.
In November 2017, SA Recycling LLC acquired the assets of Tennessee Valley Recycling LLC, which had been based in Decatur in Alabama and operated seven locations in Alabama and Tennessee.
In 2018, SA made two more moves in the Southeast, acquiring the assets of Georgia Recyclers in Savannah in Georgia and assuming the operations of yards in Mobile in Alabama and Hattiesburg in Mississippi, from St Louis-based Alter Trading Corp.
In 2020, SA acquired the assets of Steel City Recycling in Birmingham in Alabama and West Point in Mississippi.
Earlier this year, SA Recycling LLC entered the Florida market with the purchases of Capital Scrap (Pompano Beach, Stuart, and West Palm Beach, Florida); Metals USA (Lauderhill, Miami and Opa Locka, Florida); and Southern Scrap (Pensacola, Florida).
SA Recycling, a 50-50 joint venture between global recycler Sims Metal Management and Adams Steel, now operates 87 scrap processing facilities in multiple regions in the United States, including 15 shredders and deep-water port loading operations in Long Beach and Los Angeles in California and Savannah.
