Galamba reaches into Arkansas.
Robert Applegarth started Applegarth Recycling in 1977. Galamba Metals Group will continue the Applegarth demolition business as well as add customer scrap management services that include trucking and on-site boxes and collection services.
Robert Applegarth will join Galamba as a scrap metal buyer in southwest Missouri and northwest Arkansas. He has helped the company maintain a favorable civic profile by taking part in the Sulphur Springs Business Advisory Council and the Benton County Solid Waste Board. Applegarth also devotes time to recycling education.
Galamba also announced that it has installed a double-magnet downstream separation system for its 2,500 hp auto shredder in Kansas City.
The company calls the installation "one of few like it in the region" and will result in larger volumes of recovered metals for the firm to sell to its foundry and steel mill customers.
In a news release, Galamba says it "expects a substantial improvement in production of shredded steel as a result of the installation, which was completed in mid-September." In addition to the the double-magnet separation system, Galamba added a smart-water injection system and computerized controls and placed more than 1,000 yards of new concrete and a new mill operating tower for the shredder.
Galamba now has a regional network of 10 locations and mobile scrap processing operations throughout the Midwest.
