About Us

Central Machinery and Metals was founded in 1948 by Karl and Ernst Marx. Beginning with one truck and a small warehouse in Toronto’s stockyard district, the two brothers acted on a clear set of goals, moving the growing company to a 12,000 square-foot facility in Weston by 1963.

Providing customized metal recycling programs specific to their customers’ unique service requirements, Central Machinery & Metals shaped a reputation for service excellence.

Today from our 40,000 square foot headquarters in Mississauga, we operate a diverse fleet of trucks able to handle cross-border and complex hauling requirements. We provide a safe working environment where employees are encouraged to perform with an equal blend of skill and innovation.
