Our company has been in the same location for over half a century. It started out as a salvage company for military surplus equipment used in WWII. At that time it was operated by a family who rightly called it Follings & Sons recycling. As Industries grew so did the need for recycling. Follings & Sons specialized in servicing manufacturers' recycling needs by offering pickups of waste metal scraps. It was not until the year of 1962 that C & M Metals, Inc. would come to be with the introduction of a new partner, and a fresh new start.
It was in 1962 that the partnership would come eye to eye with the fact that recycling was not only beneficial for large manufacturing companies but for everyone and would open its doors to the public as well. People from all over Los Angeles would come to recycle steel, aluminum, and other metals. For a great many years C & M Metals, Inc. would recycle thousands of tons per month of steel from both private and public sectors.
