K-Scrap Resources Ltd. has been a leader in the steel recycling industry for 125 years. Located on the west side of Windsor Ontario, K-Scrap started off as a father and son company, owned by the Kovinsky family and was originally called Kovinsky & Sons. In 1933, Mr. Kovinsky purchased land from the Essex Terminal Railway (ETR) along the Detroit River, and eighty four years later, the company can still be found at that location. In 1988, the name was changed to K-Scrap Resources Ltd. to more properly reflect the industry that it was in and the diverse ownership that now existed.
