ROCA operates metals recycling business covering ferrous as well as nonferrous scrap metals. The company operates four scrap processing facilities, which are strategically located in proximity to high-volume industrial scrap sources located throughout Central and Northern Mexico. These facilities together accounts for shipment of approximately 575,000 gross tons of scrap every year and have a combined annual processing capacity of around 850,000 gross tons.

Mark D. Millett, Chairman, President and Chief Executive Officer, SDI noted that the addition of ROCA will significantly strengthen its raw material procurement strategy in the region. Upon full integration of ROCA with its existing Mexican metals recycling operations, the company will be able to provide meaningful competitive advantage to its U.S. electric-arc-furnace steel operations, Millett added.
