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 ninety-one 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.
