Company History

Opened in 1909, Sigelman Steel & Recycling was purchased by Mark Opatz in 1970 when his brother, who had originally planned to take over the business, had to step aside. Though taking the reins at the steel cutting and metal recycling business was a challenge, it worked out well for Mark and the Opatz family. In 2002, Mark’s son, Jon, purchased Sigelman Steel from his father.

Today, Jon’s sons, Sam and Luke, who took over the business in 2022, are carrying the legacy forward. The new owners plan to maintain the close-knit feel of Sigelman Steel & Recycling, while offering even more competitive pricing and increased efficiency.
