Fastmarkets Names Wendt Scrap Equipment Company of the Year

Fastmarkets (London) named Wendt Corp. (Buffalo, N.Y.) scrap equipment company of the year during its 11th annual Global Awards for Steel Excellence July 24.

 The awards recognize companies in the steel supply chain that demonstrate innovation or “customer-centric solutions,” Fastmarkets says.

Wendt’s nomination highlighted the company’s efforts to keep North American recyclers compliant with Environmental Protection Agency regulations, including a shredding facility Wendt designed and built at Northern Metal Recycling’s new location in Becker, Minn., in 2019, which is completely enclosed. Wendt says the Becker location is meant to be one of the “the most environmentally progressive auto shredding plants ever built.” Visit or
