Iron and Steel

Midland Iron and Steel processing saves energy, water and generates money for you.

 

While industrial manufacturing has become increasingly lean and efficient throughout Midland’s more than 125 years of service, some things never change. For one, it remains impossible to produce a product without generating three to five percent scrap metal. With energy prices increasing, more and more manufacturers are turning to Midland to turn their scrap into gold.

 

The fact is, it takes 25 percent less energy to process scrap metal into high-grade steel, than it does to create new product from raw materials. So, the iron and steel our forefathers once salvaged for free along the banks of the mighty Mississippi has now become a valuable treasure – and a significant revenue stream for many of our industrial customers.

Turn Trash into Treasure

The values we pay for your scrap metal are set each day and fluctuate with industrial demand and current market trends. If the market is high, those benefits are passed along to you and other Midland’s customers.

 

Once your scrap metal arrives in our yard, it is carefully sorted, cut, and thoroughly cleaned to remove all contaminates. The processed scrap is then shipped to foundries or steel mills where it is re-melted to make new products.

 

One reason we can pay top dollar for your scrap is the investments we have made in custom processing equipment, including several pieces unique to Midland. This specialized equipment allows Midland to provide products that melt more efficiently and conform to stringent specifications set by individual foundries and mils.
