Palo Alto Metal Services (Scrap Metal)
You May Have Heard Our Name
Everyone in Palo Alto who’s ever had any scrap metal needs – recycling, purchase & selling, steel demolition – they’ve definitely come across the Alco Iron & Metal company name. We’ve been focused on building an undeniable reputation since 1953. Remaining a family owned and operated business for the last 60 years wasn’t an easy task, but the Alco Iron & Metal team isn’t afraid of a challenge.
We relied on our family’s passion and love for the community to continue preserving and expanding our services. Transitioning from a small ¼-acre enterprise into a globally recognized full-service provider is one of the greatest things we’ve ever achieved. It’s almost as remarkable as our ability to hold on to our client’s trust even as control is passed down through generations.
We prioritize our values above all else. More than a business opportunity, Alco Iron & Metal Company was birthed from our family’s passion for providing the best service available. Each interaction with our clients & every time one of our 5 facilities are opened for business, we make sure to honor our original commitment.
