West Virginia business acquires Elkins Iron & Metal

Elkins Iron & Metal Company in Elkins, West Virginia has been acquired by a West Virginia business man, Andrew Gongola.

The Elkins facility will be renamed Elkins Metal Recycling and will join Gongola’s current group of metal recycling businesses in West Virginia and Pennsylvania.

The Elkins facility was founded by Gongola’s grandfather in 1957 and run by Gongola’s father since 1980. Andrew Gongola will be a third generation owner. “I am proud to now be the third generation to operate the business and continue the family’s history”, says Gongola.

The Elkins facility joins Gongola’s Three Rivers Iron & Metal, a full service scrap yard in Fairmont, West Virginia and Clean Metal, a specialized incinerator scrap operation near Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.

Elkins Metal Recycling has leased rail cars and will utilize the ability to ship by rail from Elkins as a method to transport nearly 50% of materials. Truck shipments will be utilized for higher value metals. Gongola’s group of businesses will be headquartered at the Elkins location.
