Peter Faber formed the corporation in 1992. His experience in the scrap business began in 1965 at Brookside Metal Company, a leading scrap yard and brass and bronze ingot manufacturer in the UK. After a four-year stint in the recycling field in Israel he joined Mountstar Metal Corporation, a subsidiary of Amalgamated Metal Corporation, and then moved with his family to Los Angeles and opened an office for Erlanger Corp, a S&W Beresford subsidiary. In 1980 he opened Cassmet International and later opened a yard in South Los Angeles that sourced the full array of non-ferrous scrap from the Southern California basin. This rich and varied background expanded his trading knowledge and management skills, enabling him to shape Tangent Trading Corporation successfully into a modern international trading company with the ability to meet all the regulatory requirements and the financial disciplines that this entails.
