FAMILY OWNED AND OPERATED FOR 60 YEARS
January 14, 2018
It has been seventeen months and my second attempt to post to the website. Thank You, all who read our posts, take part in our surveys or follow us on Facebook. Your input is always valuable to us. There are a couple of items I would like to address. Prices and hours of operation seem to be the biggest concern.
So let talk about prices as they remain somewhat improved since our last post. Going in my 29th year in this business prices seem to be flat but historically are where they have traded in the past. Copper remains to be the strongest. I think one of the most frustrating things we have gone through are some item are not worth purchasing. China is still not a significant presence as they once were. Labor, preparations, and transportation also are significant factors. The dollar has strength as that also keeps away foreign buyers. This business always has and will remain driven by volume. So its hard to tell people with small quantities that what they have is worthless. The difference between a couple of years made when prices were at historic highs. We remain committed to finding the right home for our products so that we can be competitive in purchasing your metals.
Second order of business is hours of operation. Activity has remained slow also for this period. We have cut our staff altered our hours and closed on certain days. This change is done to help us catch up on needed rest and be able to process the materials purchased. Weather is the unpredictable thing that could result in a day taken off. I always try to keep things simple and the same, so people don’t make wasted trips here. We will post these changes on Facebook which also links to this website and the business answering machine. So don’t keep hanging up and calling back listen to the message. As always Thank You for understanding and your business is IMPORTANT to us.

Small Batch Salvage™
For those of you wondering what is small batch salvage? The story goes along this way. For well over 50 years GSSCO has been in the recycling industry. If you haven't heard of us you might have purchased our metals through someone else. Like others in this business our founding father Frank Jr. sorted and graded metals using the means of a shear, torch, grinder, acids and knowledge. He would bid on lots of metals upgrade the and sell them. Time has passed and technology has changed. We still hand sort our materials, then prepare them ( by torch or plasm cutter) with stricter standards and a wider range of products.
We now use the process of a Niton X-ray gun, which enables us to give you what you pay for not an inferior grade. Finally, we use our knowledge as a second generation recycler and over 25 years of experience to deliver a superior quality of recycled materials. Like our founding father over 50 years ago, somethings never change and neither does our focus on quality. Even though this requires more time we feel you can't jeopardize quality for quantity.
What we can do for you is give you quality products that meets the strictest standers or the most leant
We cannot guarantee trailer loads of scrap per month which is what sets us apart from others. What we can do for you is give you quality products that meets the strictest standers or the most leant. So whether you’re looking for boxed, baled or barreled materials try small batch salvage you won't be disappointed.
