SMS Idles Three Auto Yards
Scrap Metal Services, LLC, has idled three of its SMS Paul’s Auto Yard operations in Indiana. The facilities are located in Demotte, Elkhart and Westville. This follows the idling of the company’s Coloma, Mich., yard earlier this year.
SMS plans to renew its focus on the three remaining SMS Paul’s Auto Yard locations in Indiana, in South Bend, Gary and Lake Station, which will continue to offer full-service auto yard and recycling services to the public. The company also will continue to serve the needs of its customers through its auto shredder operations in New Carlisle, Ind.
SMS has no immediate plans to reopen the idled SMS Paul’s yards until business conditions recover, but hopes the decision will allow SMS Paul’s to remain profitable and increase its future options.
