About Manitoba Corporation

Manitoba Corporation has carved out a unique niche in the world of recycling. We are a major processor of any and all types of non-ferrous scrap metals. We operate shears, chopping lines, briquettors, wire burning incinerators, small arms ammunition popping oven, as well as considerable additional equipment to prepare and process metals. One of our specialties is the reduction of bulk shipments of metals into easy to handle smaller packages. We package, flake, chops, shot, powder, etc. into paper and cloth bags, as well as plastic or metal pails and drums for easier alloying and handling by our customers. We were established in Buffalo, NY in 1916. We are currently being operated by the third and fourth generation of the founder, as well as others who have joined the firm over the past ninety two years. A European immigrant who was unable to find work in the local factories founded the company. He obtained a pushcart and started to earn a living picking up rags, waste paper, and metals from people's homes. Eventually through very hard work and long hours he earned enough money to purchase a horse and wagon which allowed him to increase the amount of materials which he was able to recycle. In due time, he purchased a small shop and became a wholesaler who handled the merchandise of other peddlers. After World War Two and the development of synthetic fabrics such as nylon, dacron, and rayon, the recycling of rags went into a serious decline. At that time, Manitoba Corporation gradually began to increase the recycling of metals and slowly got out of recycling of rags and waste paper. Today, Manitoba Corporation operates a very modern recycling plant at its headquarters in Lancaster, NY which is just east of Buffalo. In addition, we have a facility in St. Louis, MO.
