On September 13, Gershow Recycling hosted 14 owners and CEOs of scrap metal companies from Russia for a tour of its Medford facility. The guests were part of Ruslom, a trade organization comprised of representatives from the Russian scrap metal industry. The group recently came to the United States to visit numerous scrap metal recycling companies across the country, including Gershow.

Gershow is highly recognized for having one of the most technologically advanced scrap metal processing facilities in the world. Its technology allows the company to minimize metal waste entering landfills, helping to protect the local environment.

“This is one of the best tours I have taken,” said Victor Kovshevny, Director, Ruslom, who helped organize the visit. “Gershow should be proud of the work they do. We are very grateful to the company for showing us their facility and for hosting us.”

Gershow has nine locations in Brooklyn, New Hyde Park, Valley Stream, Freeport, Lindenhurst, Huntington Station, Bay Shore, Medford and Riverhead. For more information, call (631) 289-6188 or visit
