Over 50 years ago, Bert Appel and Charles Frydman began reclaiming scrap metals in Dayton, Ohio. Building their business one client at a time, they created Midwest Iron & Metal Company in the mid-1950s. These were the days when business arrangements were sealed with personal trust and a handshake. Appel and Frydmans’ commitment to hard work, integrity, and honest business relations grew the stellar reputation of Midwest Iron for more than five decades.
