Raleigh Metal Recycling (Formerly K & L Scrap), in NC was founded as a Scrap Metal & Salvage Yard / Scrap Yard in the 1930's and was purchased by Seymour Brown in 1968. His father Joseph S. Brown, moved to Goldsboro, North Carolina from Dayton, Ohio in 1922 and opened Goldsboro Iron and Metal, now known as Goldsboro Metal Recycling. In the 1930s he also took over what is now known as Wilson Metal Recycling JG.
Seymour Brown, also known as "Junk Brown" began running the company in 1937. Under Seymour, the company became the Emerald of Isle of the Scrap Metal Recycling business in North Carolina. He built the largest Scrap Metal Salvage operation in NC. Having also purchased the location now known as Raleigh Metal Recycling and Wilson Metal Recycling, the Goldsboro, Raleigh, Wilson locations became leaders in Scrap Metal Recycling: Scrap Steel, Scrap Copper, Scrap Aluminum, Scrap Brass, Junk Cars, (Salvage Cars) and even Aluminum Can recycling for money, with great scrap metal prices per pound, top dollars, the most money. When Seymour Brown died in 1993, his family had management; a lawyer and an accountant supervise the company. He also sold Wilson Metal Recycling to Jeff Charles, who today runs it with a marketing agreement with Raleigh and Goldsboro Recycling Centers.
In August, 2007, the company was acquired by Greg Brown, who began a transformation of the facilities as Scrap Metal Recycling Centers became an ever more important part of the Global economy.
