Davis Index: Market Intelligence for the Global Metals and Recycled Materials Markets

River Metals Recycling (RMR) has acquired almost all the metal recycling assets of Industrial Services of America (ISA).


RMR, which is a wholly owned subsidiary of David J. Joseph Company (DJJ), will also integrate all ISA employees and operations as part of this agreement. RMR said in a statement that the acquisition of ISA’s metal recycling business—which include an automobile shredder and a self-serve auto parts yard in Kentucky and facilities in Indiana—was consistent with DJJ’s strategy to grow its regional recycling platform. 


The Nucor company currently operates 11 locations in Kentucky, Ohio, Tennessee, Indiana, Illinois, and Alabama including automobile shredders in Newport and Louisville, Kentucky.


The acquisition, according to a statement by RMR also supports the company’s expanding base of ferrous and non-ferrous customers in the region.


RMR’s parent company, DJJ, is a Cincinnati-based subsidiary of Nucor and provides scrap brokerage, recycling, and transportation services to the metals industry.
