Brown moved to Goldsboro, North Carolina from Dayton, Ohio in 1922 and opened Goldsboro Iron and Metal, which later bought this operation and turned it into a major Wilson scrap metal recycling center.Seymour Brown, also known as "Junk Brown" began running the company in 1937. Under Seymour, the company became the Emerald of Isle of the Scrap Metal Recycling business in North Carolina. He built the largest Scrap Metal Salvage operation in North Carolina.
