I'd like to be the first to welcome Nucor Corporation (NYSE: NUE)
Trademark Metals Recycling LLC (TMR), and the
David J Joseph Company to Fort Myers-Lee County as the new owners of "Garden Street Metals and Recycling"!
The legacy of Garden Street, which NUE and DJJ closed on yesterday(October 4 2021)is strong in Fort Myers, and the owners were some of the most respected people I've ever been blessed to know. Rob and Lynda Weber have never said no to helping our community, and I wish them all the best in their retirement and the next phase of their lives!
Nucor Corporation (NYSE: NUE) announced two acquisitions today on behalf of The David J. Joseph Company (DJJ). The addition of these new recycling locations, representing a 10% growth in capacity, is consistent with Nucor's growth strategy and demonstrates our commitment to expanding the regional recycling platforms supporting our steel mills.
On September 30, Advantage Metals Recycling (AMR) completed the purchase of Grossman Iron and Steel located in St. Louis, Missouri.
Trademark Metals Recycling LLC (TMR) purchased the assets of Garden Street Iron & Metal Inc. located in Fort Myers, Florida. This transaction closed on October 4, 2021.
