NEW YORK TJN
Enterprises Inc. has broken ground on a 20-acre scrap metal
recycling facility in Sioux Falls, S.D., to accommodate
increasing demand in the area.
current scrap processing plant is only four acres, and needs to
be larger to accommodate the growth Sioux Falls has made in the
past 20 years, project manager David Bernstein told
AMM. "We need to have this much larger second site to
be able to serve the area more appropriately."
The facility, which
will cost between $10 million and $15 million, will employ up
to 60 people to separate, process and ship ferrous and
nonferrous metals in the Midwest, the company said. It is
scheduled to be completed in fall 2014.
Sioux Falls-based TJN
is a joint venture between Spencer, Iowa-based Shine Bros.
Corp., Sioux City-based State Steel Supply Co. and Sioux City
Compressed Steel Co.
The three companies
are operationally separate, but market and sell metals jointly,
said Bernstein, who in addition to being project manager is
also co-owner of State Steel.
TJN is considering
using its current scrap facility as a feeder yard once the
larger one is completed, Bernstein said.
