PITTSBURGH Kentucky metals recycler Midwest Metals Corp. is setting up another scrapyard in the state after receiving all the necessary approvals.
The Louisville-based company expects to have its Shelbyville, Ky., yard up and running by fall. "Its a great location right off the expressway," president Jeff Wence told AMM.
The yard will take up about a third of the 10-acre site, with the remainder to be unused for now. Construction is under way, and a truck scale is being installed.
The facilitys customer base will include industrial accounts and retail trade. The material procured will be shipped directly to mills and foundries, Wence said.
Midwest Metals also owns a nonferrous facility in Louisville, a feeder yard in Frankfort, Ky., and an aluminum coil division selling finished metal in Kennesaw, Ga.
