In an ongoing effort to meet business where business is done, Suffolk County Legislators John M. Kennedy, Jr. (R-Nesconset) and Tom Muratore (R-Ronkonkoma) met with Phillip Fava, President, and Richard Smith, Director of Operations for PK Metals, located in Coram, New York.

As a recognized leader in the scrap metal industry, with over three decades of experience, PK Metals has been serving Long Island businesses and residents in meeting all of their scrap and recycling needs.

In 2011, PK Metals recycled several million pounds of metal, plastic and other materials. In addition to being an industry that is eco-friendly, PK Metals employs approximately 65 local residents, providing stability and significant economic support throughout Central Brookhaven and surrounding areas.

During their meeting and tour, Mr. Fava explained the configuration of present operations, and the desire for PK Metals to expand operations at their present site.

“I believe it is imperative that businesses such as PK Metals, in existence since 1979, have the ability to remain and expand here in Suffolk County. They provide a necessary service, employ many people, and if government can facilitate their expansion, then we should do what we can to keep them viable in this economy.” said Legislator Muratore.

In addition, Legislator Kennedy indicated that both offices would welcome comment, contract or requests from businesses to help them not just survive, but to thrive in the current economic environment within Suffolk.
