"I became familiar with Shapiro Metals at Imperial Fabricating. Shapiro Metals came in and helped to educate every employee on the importance of keeping scrap metal segregated to increase the value of the scrap in the market place. They also color-coded and labeled all scrap hoppers and roll-off containers to develop a scrap system that was simple to use. Through these avenues Shapiro increased Imperial Fabricating's scrap revenue by 25%."
Robert M. Reed, North American Stamping Group, L.L.C.
(Formerly of Imperial Fabricating).
"Shapiro Metals guaranteed me that I would receive a 10 percent revenue increase with a little training on handling our scrap through segregation. I agreed to the trial period. At the end of the trial period we saw a 13 percent increase in our scrap revenue. If I were to consider the production volume and other factors, we were closer to a 20 to 25 percent increase. Needless to say, we've been very happy with Shapiro Metals and look forward to the future with this company."
Dan Kendall, Materials Manager, Sooner Trailer Manufacturing
"Our four plants have seen a 25% revenue increase since we started working with Shapiro Metals. I believe that proper and ongoing training has been the key. Production managers and supervisors understand the program so they can ensure success on a day-to-day basis. Material handlers have been trained to understand the differences in materials and how to properly load the trailers to maximize fill trailer weights. Individual line employees have also been trained to understand the materials that they are handling and the importance of separating into the proper bins. Shapiro Metals has a working relationship with all management levels in out production facilities, and invests many days effort in each of our plants. They also have provided periodic follow-up visits and keep in regular contact with material handlers to head off any potential problems. I have been asked on several occasions, 'Why didn't our previous scrap company do this?'"
Lou Feil, Pace American, Inc.
"Partnering with Shapiro Metals has helped us grow to an 18 million dollar a year company by providing honest and fair pricing and ongoing training. Their experience and knowledge stands heads and shoulders above the competition. I highly recommend Shapiro Metals to any manufacturing facility that wants to gain control of their scrap and recycling costs and procedures. They possess the desire, knowledge and integrity that have long been missing in the scrap industry."
