MetalX selects new Ohio site for aluminum recycling campus

Metals recycler MetalX LLC has selected a 190-acre site in Defiance, Ohio, for its previously announced aluminum recycling campus. Initial development plans include an aluminum rolling slab manufacturing plant, a scrap shredding and advanced sortation facility, and a dedicated logistics hub. 

“This is an outstanding site and met all key criteria for the project, including proximity to sources of scrap supply, ample power, gas, water, and other utilities, main line rail service, access to major highways, and most importantly a solid workforce environment,” said Danny Rifkin, MetalX CEO. “We are excited to expand into Ohio and are looking forward to a continued partnership with the economic development groups who helped us identify and select this site and have provided invaluable guidance through the entire process. They have all been great to work with.”
