Pioneer in the wire chopping industry
Mallin Companies Facts
In 1953, Harry’s son, Larry Mallin became the second generation to contribute to the family business. Twelve years after joining Mallin Brothers, Larry pursued the idea of the then “new and unpopular” wire chopping industry. At the time, burning insulation off the wire was the only way to recycle and recover the metal. Making the process easier and enhancing the value of wire, Mallin Brothers became one of the first wire chopping facilities in the nation.
Larry’s son, Jeffrey Mallin, joined Mallin Brothers in 1981 becoming the third generation to enter the family business. Jeffrey has worked alongside his father to streamline operations and efficiencies, create new opportunities for growth and profitability by diversifying its customer base, increase industrial accounts, creating a recycling consultation program, and creative marketing.
Jeff’s son, Zach Mallin proudly became the 4th generation of owners in the company when he started his career with the company in 2014. Zach applied his formal education in business and finance as well as his years of experience growing up in the business to advance and increase the company’s production and refining capabilities and is responsible for purchasing scrap and marketing the company’s finished products. Zach has taken an active role in ISRI, the national trade association for recyclers, serving in many leadership positions, including President of the Mid-America Chapter.
