Scrap Expo

Scrap Expo is a unique event designed especially for scrap metal dealers & processors, auto dismantlers and others handling and preparing ferrous and nonferrous scrap. It’s a hands-on event that allows attendees to jump in and operate equipment and see live demonstrations. You’ll get to grab the joystick and feel how the equipment responds. Move, cut and prepare scrap in real time. See live demonstrations of baling, logging and shearing equipment. There is nothing like the real thing! Separately, the event will be full of technical training sessions covering machine maintenance and operation. There will also be informative sessions like scrap identification classes. Join SWEED this year at the Scrap Expo on September 17-18, 2024, in Louisville, KY!

Our History

It all started with an imported gang saw. After WWII, three brothers from Germany migrated to the United States and built a sawmill on Galls Creek in Gold Hill, Oregon. Dissatisfied with the imported gang saw they were using, they decided they could make a better saw themselves.
