Ship Recycling & Oil Drilling Rig Dismantling

Ship Recycling & Oil Drilling Rig Dismantling

Ship recycling and oil drilling rig dismantling is no easy job. In fact, the process is so technical there are only a handful of of licensed and approved dismantlers and recyclers in the United States.

Our subsidiary, Scrap Metal Services Brownsville, formerly All Star Metals,  is one of the few approved ship recyclers in the nation, and also handles the dismantling and recycling of oil drilling rigs and oil production platforms.  Our team is comprised of highly skilled and experienced industry professionals. We have the expertise and trust our clients can rely on, and have the safety track record our clients can take comfort in. We set the standard for excellence in the industry.

Efficient, Safe Dismantling and Recycling

Safety is our number one company value.  We actively measure safety at all of our sites.  During the dismantling process, we work with integrity.

For each and every project, we always ensure worker safety by ensuring the following:

  • Maintain ship stability
  • Adhere to federal workplace safety guidelines
  • Provide fall protection
  • Protect against dangerous work conditions

We make sure that any removal of ferrous or non-ferrous materials for recycling or dismantling is thoroughly analyzed first. If a job will compromise the stability of the ship or worker safety, a new strategy is devised to ensure that neither are an issue.
