Safety & Compliance
The safety of our customers and employees is a priority of Liberty. All employees are required to wear appropriate protective gear, attend regular safety training and adhere to required government regulations. Liberty utilizes industry-sponsored and third party safety reviews to ensure a safe working environment for its customers and employees.
Liberty retains independent environmental consultants to ensure compliance with federal and state environmental laws. All trucks entering Liberty’s facilities pass through state-of-the-art radiation detection equipment. Liberty’s experienced staff carefully reviews all incoming loads to detect and isolate any suspect scrap. Liberty’s focus on environmental compliance not only protects our customers but helps preserve our environment.
Liberty and its affiliated companies operate facilities in Arizona, New York, Ohio, Pennsylvania and Mexico.
Each of Liberty’s affiliated companies are experienced, multi-generational family-owned and operated businesses that focus on delivering the highest level of customer service. In 2007, family-owned Liberty Iron & Metal Company, Inc. and Diamond Hurwitz Scrap LLC entered into a joint venture with Scholz A.G., an Essingen, Germany-based global family scrap company with roots dating back to 1872, to form Liberty Iron & Metal Holdings, LLC.
In 2008, Liberty expanded in both the United States and Mexico through business combinations with 3 similar multi-generational family scrap companies. During January and February, 2008, Liberty acquired Mercer Company, a Sharon-Pa based company, and entered into a joint venture with Niles Iron & Metal Co., Inc. of Niles, Ohio. Liberty partnered with Gary and Michael Clayman to form LNM Holdings, LLC, which includes Mercer, Niles Iron & Metal Company, LLC and Interstate Shredding, LLC, its newest yard with a state-of-the-art 4000 horsepower shredder. In June 2008, Liberty expanded into Mexico with a joint venture with family-operated Kalischatarra, S. de RL de CV
