About Us

Eastern Metal Trading Co., Inc. was founded in 1991, and specializes in the purchase and sale of excess prime, surplus and salvage metals in the spot market.

We are not a brokerage, we are position takers. We buy and stock inventory all across North America. Over the years we have developed traditional as well as non-traditional material sourcing. Our niche sourcing and purchasing power, buying in large bulk lot quantities, has enabled us to offer metal products to our customers well below normal market pricing.

Eastern Metals has long standing relationships with vendors and customers and always seeks a win-win scenario, by offering fair value for materials purchased, and providing buyers opportunities not found elsewhere.

Applying this same winning formula, we have expanded the products lines which we now carry. Over the years we have since gained expertise in the forest products industry through our SurplusPlywood.com Division. Again offering the same below market value for excess prime, surplus and salvage wood products. In addition we have the Eastern Asset Recovery Division, which handles products not covered by Eastern Metals or Forest Products divisions.
