Pasco Iron and Metal Wins Manufacturing Industry of the Year Award

September 24, 2012

Congratulations to Pasco Iron and Metal, this year's Category 1 Manufacturing Industry of the Year award winner! PEDC Manufacturing Industry of the Year Category 1 | 2012 from VHVIDEO.COM Established in Land O' Lakes in 2007, Pasco Iron and Metal specializes in servicing industrial customers with their recycling needs. They purchase scrap metal from public, service, repair industry and manufacturers that produce metal by-products and recycle those materials. They can recycle just about anything! In fact, they recycled all the metal from the demolished Kennedy Launch Pad, and also recycled the metal from the retired CENTCOM building from MacDill Air Force Base. The company recently constructed a brand new 6,000 sq. ft. warehouse for processing and storage of scrap metal, added several scrap metal storage containers and also purchased a new scrap metal shear (which is used to cut huge scrap metal pieces into smaller required sizes). They also ship tons of materials all over the world and export to such places as China, Korea, Pakistan, Germany and Japan. Because of the new CSX Spur, in partnership with Tibbits lumber, they utilize the rail right of way which has allowed them the ability to sell internationally. With the new million dollar plus expansion and capital investments the business has increased their market range and added 7 new positions. They have used Career Central for hiring needs and also offer vacation time and tuition reimbursement for the new employees. The company currently has 21 employees and just graduated their first intern who trained for the scrap metal business management. They also have trained employees for new FL statues taking effect July 1st to help eliminate purchasing of stolen metals. Just a few of the organizations this company is involved with are: The Great American Cleanup, Metropolitan Ministries, Oasis Pregnancy Center, Make-A-Wish Foundations, Bayside Church, Rotary, First Baptist Academy, The Pasco Economic Development Council, American Heart Association, Special Olympics, and Boyscout troops. And that’s just to name a few! They are also a Member of Florida Recyclers Association and serve on the board for Keep Pasco Beautiful.
