To The Loyal Customers of Kimmel Scrap Iron & Metal

One of the major issues we at Kimmel have faced over the past year is a shortage of rail cars with which we ship our and your scrap metal to steel mills and foundries. A lot of press has been given to the changes in rail service in America. We have made the decision to purchase the first 5 railcars which will be company owned. This should allow us to ship more material and be less dependent on system owned cars and leased cars from other vendors. Just as you our customers continue to constantly improve your operations we at Kimmel also work to be more efficient and cost effective in all of our operations.

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

Many of you have tried our new dispatch system which works well with portable smart phones or office computers. We would appreciate any comments you might have or any suggestions to improve this service. You are always welcome to continue and call our office at 313-934-1100, fax 313-934-2141 or use dispatch@kimmelscrap.net.

My best wishes for you and your family to enjoy the beginning of fall in Michigan.
