Scrap Processors Inc.


FAMILY OWNED
SINCE 1948

1948

With only a pick-up truck, Texas-native Myer “Mike” Silverstein began to collect and sell scrap metal. While cruising through Webster City on the hunt for metal, he saw his opportunity. He bought some land and set-up shop, Webster City Iron & Metal Co.

1951

Through the years, Mike acquires additional property. In 1951, he relocates the business to what is now Scrap Processors, Inc. (SPI), at 505 Seneca Street in Webster City, Iowa.

1961

Mike’s sons, Ben and Kenny, join the team. Together they expand the company to include not just scrap yards, but auto parts and convenience stores, too — all located in Central Iowa.

1978

SPI celebrates 30 years of serving Central Iowa’s scrap- metal-recycling needs.

1985

In the wake of both Mike and Kenny’s retirements, Ben shifts SPI’s focus back to scrap-metal processing and recycling.

2008

2009

Ben retires and his son, David, begins expanding SPI’s services with modern and eco-friendly options, such as demanufacturing and recycling cars and appliances.

2012

After just three years, David grows the business to include a third location devoted to recycling appliances.

2018

Ninety percent of our staff has been with us for 10 years plus.

Today

Together, with the loyal, hardworking SPI staff, David continues to explore new, innovative and sustainable ways to serve the communities that have supported SPI for over 70 years.
