Building on a vision

From left to right: Combined Metal Industries' Darryl Shull, Gary Kaplan and David Kaplan.

Combined Metal Industries, Inc. (CMI) is not just a market leader. The company employs nearly 300 people and is one of Canada’s fastest growing scrap metal recyclers. But it didn’t begin like that. It started 20 years ago with the vision of a young man who understood that one person’s garbage was another’s treasure. This is a lesson Gary Kaplan learned at a young age while sweeping scrap shavings off the floors of a South African scrap yard. Curiosity bloomed as the then 21 year-old became enthralled by the potential held by each metal. Kaplan wanted to learn everything. How was each metal comprised, how did it generate value and how could it be traded?
