On November 30, 2012, Advantage Metals Recycling (AMR) purchased the assets and business of Nuelle’s 4X4 Salvage in Higginsville, Missouri. Founded in 1986, Nuelle operates a scrap metal processing facility and a full-service used auto parts store at 19861 Outer Road near the junction of Interstate 70 and Highway 13.

The addition of this new location is consistent with AMR’s growth strategy and demonstrates DJJ’s commitment to expanding its existing regional recycling platforms.

Advantage Metals Recycling is Kansas and Missouri’s largest scrap recycler. AMR is headquartered in Kansas City, has over 350 employees and now operates 15 recycling facilities. AMR’s Higginsville Missouri recycling center buys automobiles, scrap iron and steel as well as common household nonferrous scrap metal items like aluminum cans and other aluminum, stainless steel, copper and brass products. In addition, they sell used auto parts on site.

Founded in 1885, DJJ is one of the largest scrap brokers/processors in the United States providing scrap brokerage, recycling and transportation services. Nucor and affiliates are manufacturers of steel products, with operating facilities primarily in the U.S. and Canada. Nucor is the leading purchaser of ferrous scrap and the largest recycler in North America, with operating facilities primarily in the U.S and Canada. Across the USA, DJJ now operates 69 scrap recycling facilities, and nine U-Pull-&-Pay self-service used auto parts stores.
