Reason for Selling


Market Competition and Expansion

This business has a stellar reputation for service which translates for 30 years into strong word of mouth advertising from reliable repeat customers. This Owner has flexibility and can react quicker to variable prices per transaction. Their alloy analyzer expedites the each transaction as they have the ability to handle their salvage at a lower cost by controlling expenses. The market for this type of business is consistently in demand. The business has a very competitive and enticing long term lease with the landlord and more unused acreage already part of the current lease and ready for expansion into other markets such as meeting the needs of longtime industrial clients. They could easily handle an increase in salvage of 100% without a need for additional equipment or space.
