Written by Becca Moczygemba

Growth is on the horizon for Commercial Metals Company (CMC). The Irving, Texas-based metals provider and recycler announced its acquisition of Advanced Steel Recovery LLC (ASR) in a press release on Sept. 15.

In addition to supplying recycled ferrous metals, Rancho Cucamonga, Calif-.based ASR possesses processing and brokering capabilities with which they can procure material for both domestic and export marketplaces.

As part of CMC’s strategic expansion plans, the addition of ASR will aid in supporting the company’s operations in the western US.

“Our Arizona 2 micro mill remains on-track to startup in early calendar 2023, and with the commencement of operations will come the need for a secure, cost-effective supply of ferrous scrap. ASR’s capabilities will help ensure that both of CMC’s world class mills in Arizona will have continued reliable access to vital raw materials,” remarked Barbara Smith, chairman, president, and CEO of CMC.

CMC is a manufacturer, recycler, processor, and fabricator of steel and metal products. The company focuses on providing materials and services through various facilities that include seven electric arc furnace mini mills, two EAF micro mills, one rerolling mill, and warehousing in the US and Poland. ASR brings complementary sustainable capabilities through its FASTek machine, the first of its kind machine that was designed to completely automate the containerization of scrap metal.
