NEW YORK — Mervis Industries Inc. has opened a 25-acre scrapyard in Crawfordsville, Ind., near steelmaker Nucor Corp.’s steel mill, with plans to open another yard in Urbana, Ill., next year.

The new yard falls under the Danville, Ill.-based recycler’s peddler-focused Advantage Recycling banner, and will accept ferrous, nonferrous and electronic scrap, company director Michael Mervis told AMM.

The site will also service industrial accounts and serve as the headquarters of trucking division Mervis Transportation.

“We are already serving industrial accounts in the area, and the location of this facility will allow us to better serve those accounts,” Mervis said. “It will also reduce our environmental impact by decreasing our trucking distances.”

Mervis said the new yard is located at the exit “just off the interstate where Nucor is situated,” which was one of the site’s key appeals.
He added that the company is currently constructing another Advantage Recycling scrapyard in Urbana, which is projected for a “late spring” open date.

The company’s Mattoon, Ill., site, formerly known as General Steel & Metals, has also been rebranded under the Advantage Recycling banner.
