Founded in 1992 by Peter Faber, and with the support of Julian Taylor and Darren Leigh of Tangent Trading Ltd in London, England (members of the London Metal Exchange and BIR), we have been conducting business from our home base office in Los Angeles, California. Peter started in the industry in London during the late 1960s, working at Brookside and Mountstar Metal. He moved to California in 1976 opening an office for Erlanger, and subsequently opened and ran a yard in Los Angeles for twelve years.

Our Logistic Department has been headed by Stephen Crocker since we were incorporated.

Eliza Lamm was brought on board in January 2006 and has expanded our Traffic Department

Today, Tangent offers a broad, but nevertheless specialized service to both our customers and suppliers. We are a member of the Institute of Scrap Recycling Industries ISRI, and with our affiliated offices in London we are always open for business. Our team is not hampered by layers of bureaucracy, and we are well known in the international scrap sector, and respected, for our straightforward approach.

Whether you are selling or buying, we have the market knowledge, solid connections and trading expertise to assure you of a superb performance in all aspects of our trading activity.
