John Silva Joins Upstate Shredding

Owego, N.Y.-based Upstate Shredding LLC has acquired the services of 20-year industry veteran John Silva. Silva previously worked at New York-based Sims Metal Management Ltd, where he was vice president of Northeast operations. His noncompete contract with Sims is still in effect, so he will be based out of Upstate Shredding’s Ben Weitsman & Son Inc. retail scrap operation in Buffalo, N.Y. until it expires.

At his permanent post, Silva will assist Upstate Shredding with their proposed Port of Albany export terminal and full-service scrap yard, which would be 18 acres upon completion, with an expected process rate of over 1 million tons of ferrous scrap metal, and 200 million pounds of nonferrous scrap metal in 2013.
