Located in the Beautiful city of Fontana, Advanced Steel Recovery (ASR) has been a staple in the inland empire for the last 20+ years. As one of the largest scrap metal exporters in North America, ASR has combined over 150 years of experience within the recycling industry with exclusive, state-of-the-art services to provide customers with the most efficient steel and non-ferrous recovery solutions.
In 2004, ASR invented FASTek (Frankel Advanced Shipping Technology), the world's first patented machine designed to fully automate the containerization of Scrap metal. FASTek is capable of safely loading 25-tons of scrap into a 20' or 40' sea container in under three minutes. Through its implementation of FASTek, ASR has created a global network of scrap suppliers, steel mills and container shipping lines, providing scrap suppliers a turnkey export solution.
While focusing on the adaptation of technology, Advanced Steel developed an intelligent, web-based system that allows our clients to manage their entire scrap trade in real-time. By integrating technology, superior service, value and integrity into the industry, we are proving that scrap is a product that cannot be ignored.
