GLE Scrap Metal History
Great Lakes Electronics Corp., founded by Nathan Zack in 2000, began its humble operations in a garage where old computers were torn down and recycled. Since that time, the company has grown across the U.S. with multiple locations and hundreds of employees.
In 2004, the Zack family decided to diversify into the ferrous and nonferrous recycling industry, and GLE Scrap Metal (GLE) was born.
As a full-service, all-in-one recycling company with operations throughout the U.S., GLE currently recycles over 250 million pounds of scrap metal each year, and is focused on increasing recyclable tonnage in the years ahead.
GLE employs a top-notch logistics team that handles its expansive fleet of trucks as well as equipment for jobs of any size, at any facility.
The hard-working, dedicated GLE staff takes great pride in honest, upfront service. We strive to build long-term relationships while providing safe, environmentally friendly service. We’re proud of the fact that our customers are treated with respect, and we offer top dollar for their scrap, whether it weighs one pound or one million pounds. GLE’s mission is to safely and efficiently consume and produce a high quality product while always being environmentally responsible. We thank our customers and employees for helping this mission drive our success. Together we’ve made GLE Scrap Metal one of the leading recyclers in the industry.
