Wilson Metal Recycling here in NC was founded as hide trading operation in the early 1900s. In about 1925, Joseph S. Brown moved to Goldsboro, North Carolina from Dayton, Ohio in 1922 and opened Goldsboro Iron and Metal, which later bought this operation and turned it into a major Wilson scrap metal recycling center.
Seymour Brown, also known as "Junk Brown" began running the company in 1937. Under Seymour, the company became the Emerald of Isle of the Scrap Metal Recycling business in North Carolina. He built the largest Scrap Metal Salvage operation in North Carolina. Having also purchased the location now known as Raleigh Metal Recycling, the Goldsboro and Raleigh locations became leaders in Scrap Metal Recycling: Scrap Steel, Scrap Copper, Scrap Aluminum, Scrap Brass, lead, steel and even Aluminum Can recycling. When Seymour Brown died in 1993, his family had management; a lawyer and an accountant supervise the company.
The company became known as J & G (Jeff and Gail, Jeff's wife) as Jeff bought the company in 1993. The company continued to grow under Jeff's leadership. In 2013, Jeff approached Greg Brown, the owner of the Raleigh Metal Recycling and Goldsboro Metal Recycling to help with marketing.
