It was a humble way to begin: three employees, one truck, a forklift. That was 25 years ago. Now – 50 employees and a fleet of trucks and forklifts, and magnet cranes later – Tucson Iron and Metal flourishes as one of Tucson’s leading full-service metal-recycling companies.
Founded in 1986 by Tandy and Gary Kippur (a third-generation scrap-metal dealer), Tucson Iron and Metal boasts not only trucks, forklifts, and magnet cranes but shears mounted exclusively on Caterpillar® products as well. And, to boast just a little bit more, no office staff works harder or is friendlier, and with a combined total of 75 years in the scrap-metal business…well, the experience of our employees speaks for itself.
Tucson Iron and Metal. Mettle for metal.
