Fountain Inn is a nice town, Just hope it does not become like Simpsonville. We been in business here as a metals recycling facility since 2005.

Wow half cent market is tuff! Yea we don't hold much inventory anymore. Buy and sell on that days market.We have had a hard 15 months but things have looked to turn better her this month. We are paying $90 dollars a ton across the scales here. Copper jumped .13 cents last night. We are watching to see if it holds. It is at it's highest in a year. We are hearing an up forecast for the next 3 months but who knows? This business has been anything but normal for over an year.

Hope the market is holding. I have about 200 pounds of clean copper and another 60-70 of dirty as well as about a 100 pounds of dirty brass. Also a couple hundred pounds of extruded aluminum. Been sitting on it for a while waiting for decent market. [-o<

Yes, we love it. I think Simpsonville is definitely headed our way though. I'm starting a Jeep Wrangler parts store in Fountain Inn and we're constantly hauling the wrecked and rusty parts to scrap. I'll definitely be headed down to see you in the next few weeks.

Nice Pat. Do the old body sections become wall art?
