FAMILY OWNED AND OPERATED FOR 60 YEARS

Dear Friends,

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 items 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 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.

Thank You

Yours Truly,
 

 

President, Granite State Salvage Co.


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.


Quote marksWhat 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.

Cinco de Salvage
No one really knows the true tradition. Or quite how many drinks were consumed to tell the story. So the story kinda goes like this. Many years ago there was a tough hombre named Señor Franco. He would work all day then go to the local cantina. He would order a cerveza and a shot. Well one night after too many he stumbled out of the bar. On his way back to his casa he saw a pile of metal. The next day he woke with a bit of a headache but the vision was clear. Señor Franco decided he would offer dinero for people to bring him metals. He eventually got married (actually a few times) and had a son. Franco was older and his time had come to let Franco take over. Yes his son had the same name. Well Franco(the son) continued on where he met a lovely señorita. As time went on he convinced her to work with him and expand the business. Señorita Hede would get the mule and cart ready each week to deliver the metals to the market. Franco and Señorita Hede gave birth to little Franco. Franco had his loyal followers who would sell him there metals. Over the years he gained more amigos. The same is true after all the years. When the dust settles at the end of a hard day. There is nothing better than a cold cerveza and a shot. So help us keep the story alive and celebrate Cinco de Salvage.
