To The Loyal Customers of Kimmel Scrap Iron & Metal

Many of you know how historically political events affect commodity prices. In years past when threats of war and terrorism appear both gold and fuel prices would rise. These last few months have seen increased tension between the United States and North Korea. Our fuel prices have been relatively steady, gold prices have also not seen incredible swings as well. As we increase globalization and world trade these swings seem to have been minimized. We are more self-sufficient, we have other methods to mitigate risk and foreign trade has made a difference in our balance of risk.

What does the above paragraph have to do with you? We have seen a slow and steady increase in some commodity prices. There has not been a wholesale jump from fear. We usually believe the slow growth in both demand and prices have a much longer lived lifecycle.

If there is anything that you feel we can do better please do not hesitate to contact either myself, Ken Schutt or TJ Yarema.
