Wichita, Kan.-based AllMetal Recycling has a “goal to be the new image in metal recycling,” according to The Wichita Eagle. The company, which is nominated for the Wichita Regional Chamber of Commerce’s 2018 Small Business Award, sorts, processes and packages scrap metal, which is sent to mills to be melted down.
While the company buys and sells metal from the general public, approximately 80 percent of its business is with commercial and industrial buyers and sellers. The company’s owners understand the company is a commodities-based business, and they’re always following the copper, aluminum and nickel markets.
The Wichita Eagle has more details:
Thanks to a remodeled office building, landscaping and general cleanup, the old junkyard north of 21st and Mosley has never looked better. It turns out the changes are more than cosmetic.
“We’re not like a normal junkyard,” said Clint Cornejo, who owns AllMetal Recycling with his cousin, Kolby. “Our goal is to be the new image in metal recycling.”
AllMetal is one of the nominees for the Wichita Regional Chamber of Commerce’s 2018 Small Business Award for “tier two” businesses — those that employ 26 to 100 people.
