Alpert & Alpert was…
Alpert & Alpert Iron & Metal, Inc. was founded by brothers Herman and Mandel Alpert, who immigrated to the United States in the early 1900′s and worked their way across an “industrializing” America, buying and selling what was once considered “junk.” Their commitment to integrity, quality and reliability continue to be the principles that guide our company today.
In the 1930′s, the Alpert & Alpert Junk Company was established in Los Angeles, dealing in rags, paper, tires and metal. Metal became the primary focus and twelve years later the expanding company moved to larger premises, where the headquarters remain today.
In the 1950′s Jake Farber and Raymond Alpert entered the business, and five years later the company incorporated as Alpert & Alpert Iron & Metal, Inc. Their vision of global trade continues to be instrumental to the growth of the company.
By 1980, Howard Farber and Alan Alpert had joined their fathers and became the third generation to manage the family business. Together with the Alpert team, they built the company into what is currently one of the largest and most influential non-ferrous recycling companies in the world.
After nearly 80 years, we remain committed to the three basic principles the founders stood for…
