Bank of America Business Capital has provided $84 million in credit facilities to Scrap Metal Services, LLC (SMS). Facilities include a $60 million asset based revolving credit facility, a $24.4 million term loan and a $4 million capital expenditure credit line.

Founded in 2005, SMS has grown rapidly through diversification and targeted merger and acquisition efforts.  Its businesses include traditional scrap processing, as well as steel mill services and intermodal, truck, container and railcar dismantling, ship and oil rig recycling, and logistics and brokerage operations.
