No - Metal Exchange USA deals with all prospective buyers to ensure they are a legit operation and will share all pertinent material information.  America needs you producing, not wasting your time wasted with the tire kickers!

Yes - At interested buyers expense.   Seller will be compensated for providing a testing coupon to a 3rd party validator. 

Negotiated Items:  Given that the seller will be receiving above market scrap value for their item, or marketing a premium item and that the buyer is receiving, in most cases, material below new market pricing and in a timely manner, the fees will be built into the agreed upon pricing.

Flat Rate Listings:  fees will be in the 7-13% range, relative to complexity of deal and verification of item listed.

Metal Exchange USA is based in Houston, TX and started after over a decade of working in the upstream oil & gas manufacturing industry. 

The concept spawned after having supply chain delays for basic materials and longer lead times from mills which put a hinderance on manufacturing normal production and the ability to quote ‘hot jobs’, knowing the material was nowhere to be found on a shelf.  While at the same time, sending thousands of lbs. of solid drops, unusable to our manufacturing needs, to the current conventional option, The Scrap Man.  

The spirit is to build a win-win community of forges, manufacturers & fabricators to sell solid material they have no use for, to someone who may have the need under new market value for the buyer and above scrap metal pricing for the seller.  You never know what the guy down the street, across town or the country is looking for!

The goal is to capture this lost value for America’s makers with the hope of benefiting US and Canadian manufacturing as we are, and should be, supporting & reshoring our supply chain.

…And keep in mind every manufacturing job supports 4 additional jobs in the community.

Buy American & we look forward to being of service to you!

Fairwinds and following seas,

Jesse Lee
