About Yard

Prime Metals USA is a metal scrap processing and trading company. We trade both ferrous and non-ferrous metals as a commodity. Specifically, our business is concentrated in the United States, Central America, South America, Europe and East-Asian region, particularly Korea, China, and Taiwan. Our materials are sourced from various yards and recycling centers all over the southern California area in addition to several locations throughout the United States, and we export on average 30,000 metric tons (MT) per month.

Our business consists of purchasing ferrous and non-ferrous scrap material, processing and preparing the material, and transporting the material by way of containers to our clients. Processing and preparing includes, but is not limited to, cutting over-sized pieces of steel, packaging the materials into bundles, and loading the material onto containers for shipment. We utilize outside logistics firms to satisfy our orders of shipment.

The scrap metal trading business, from both a national and global scale, is much too large and dynamic to determine total market capacity and demand. With thousands of scrap yards, scrap traders, and end-users making up the market, we can only make a rough estimate of market size to be about $100 billion in commodities being available and traded on the global scale, with demand on the rise. Many would consider this market as a seller’s market, where due to larger demand than supply, sellers are able to determine market price.

We meet the needs of our clients utilizing years of experience in the scrap metal industry and a wide array of resources and affiliates, including our closest partners in Asia. We are performance-driven and our future success lies in our ability to serve and satisfy you.

Prime Metals USA was established in early 2008, and we are located in Fullerton, just between the Los Angeles and Orange County border. We are continuously in the process of establishing our scrap sourcing in the Southern California area with a fresh vision of expectations and goals in mind.

We are a relatively new company, yet we have already established strong business contacts and affiliate both in the domestic and international market. Our leadership brings over 20 years of experience in the steel scrap industry, and their expertise in the market is a great asset to the company’s endeavors.

Marketing Plan

With our office located in Fullerton, we source our materials from locations in but not limited to Los Angeles, Fontana, Barstow, Long Beach, etc. in the Southern California region, along with locations in Oakland, San Francisco, Atlanta, Dallas and Miami. Outside of the United States we source material across Mexico, Central America and South America.  Our supplier network is being developed and we look forward to continuously establishing an even greater network of suppliers in the near future.

Our customers are mainly located across Korea, China, and Taiwan, and their purchases are made on a contractual basis. Due to our current effort of securing a larger supply network and our obligations to current clients, we have not yet prospected new clients, but plan to do so soon.

Our Company

Prime Metals USA is a metal scrap processing and trading company. We trade ferrous metals as a commodity, which are cast iron and carbon steel materials. Specifically, our business is concentrated in the United States and East-Asian region, particularly Korea, China, and Taiwan. Our materials are sourced from various yards and recycling centers all over the southern California area in addition to several locations throughout the United States, and we export on average 30,000 metric tons (MT) per month.

Many would consider this market as a seller’s market, where due to larger demand than supply, sellers are able to determine market price. The market price for steel scrap has more than doubled since 2007, and those prices are predicted to rise even higher through 2008.

We meet the needs of our clients utilizing years of experience in the scrap metal industry and a wide array of resources and affiliates, including our closest partner, Silvor Co., Ltd. & More Steel Co., Ltd. while we may be performance-driven, our future success lies in our ability to serve and satisfy you.
