IN THE BEGINNING
Scrap Metals and Plastics International is a 6th generation company. In 1907 my great-great Grandfather Oscar Winski, a Lafayette policeman who became one of Indiana’s first metal recyclers, started Oscar Winski Co. of which we have no affiliation. He started his business by pushing carts through streets and alleys, collecting scrap metal from industries and residences. He sorted the scrap in his home garage and resold alloy-specific metals by the truckload to regional mills and foundries. They were also in the poultry business for a very short time, until a few carloads of chickens caught the “croup” and forced him to declare bankruptcy. Years later after much success, his son and grandchildren paid every creditor in full to the heirs.
THE FAMILY BUSINESS
In 1938, my great grandfather Louis Winski, Oscar's Son, had joined the business, formed a Corporation and continued to expand in the scrap industry.
A third generation, Nate Winski, Henry Winski, Mort Winski and Jack Winski, decided to relocate to Northern Indiana. They were headquartered in Michigan City, Indiana under the name of Northern Indiana Steel Company and AMI Metals.
A fourth generation, Edward L. Winski, my father, joined his Uncles at the Indiana facility and became the Vice President of Non-Ferrous purchases and sales. That company was sold in 1971 to the Joseph Baer Corporation.
Today, Scrap Metals and Plastics International‘s current family members consist of 5th and 6th generation scrap industry executives. Current family members include President Greg Winski, an employee since 2000; his wife, Susan Winski Corporate Secretary-Treasurer; and 6th generation son Brad A. Winski who is in charge of supervising all demolition work and also trading at the executive level.
Scrap Metal and Plastics International purchases ferrous and nonferrous scrap metals from brokers, industry and sells it to mills, foundries and smelting plants throughout the country and overseas.
Our International Trading Operation purchases and sells Scrap Ferrous, Non-Ferrous and Scrap Plastics and Fuels internationally by the shipload or container load.
