All Star Metals LLC
Not many can say that their profession allows them to work with important parts of history. But Nikhil Shah, the president of All Star Metals LLC, a subsidiary of Chicago based Scrap Metal Services, can, as his company often dismantles vessels for the U.S. government. “We trade about 120,000 tons of fair scrap yearly just from our All Star Metals location,” he says.
Based in Brownsville, Texas, All Star specializes in licensed ship recycling, metal processing and environmental remediation contracting for clients that also include Chevron Corp. and Kirby Inland Marine. Shah founded All Star in 2003 and today it is one of the largest ship recyclers in North America.
