Prior to starting Northwest Metals & Salvage Service, Brad Rinker worked at Pacific Iron & Metal in 1974 as a laborer, operator, and truck driver. Later he went to work for the Purdy Company of Illinois as a scrap buyer. His extensive background in the scrap metal industry allowed him to establish Northwest Metals & Salvage Service, Inc. in 1989. With his experience & qualifications, Brad & his wife Lisa, made Northwest Metals a full service non-ferrous scrap metal recycling yard. Unfortunately, after over 30 years, the scrap yard closed in the summer of 2022.

Northwest Metals branched out early on in the demolition industry by first removing mechanical equipment and large scrap projects off site. In 1994 Northwest Metals added on a full service demolition division to the company; specializing in mechanical demolition, selective & complete demolition, concrete demolition, tenant improvement and hazardous material abatement. 

With over 30 years of experience, Northwest Metals has earned a reputation for completing projects on time, under budget, with integrity and reliability. Consistent quality of work and service has built us a loyal customer base.

Clients choose us because of what we do. They return because of the way we do it.
