Copper Approaching Two-Year High

Copper is just cents away from reaching a two-year high, last achieved April 5, 2008.  What does this mean for our customers and potential customers?  The material you ship in the near term to any of VPG's companies will receive higher pricing than you have received in the past 2 years.  This is one of the many advantages of working with VPG…when your pricing is set as a percentage or spread from the actual market you get to participate in the "good" times.  Call your marketing manager today to set up a pick up!

Florida Transformer Announces New Scrap Metal Recovery Oven

Versatile Processing Group, along with Florida Transformer, Inc, is pleased to announce the service of PCB-Contaminated electrical equipment disposal at our DeFuniak Springs, FL facility.  PCB-Contaminated (50 – 499 ppm) material regulated for disposal will be processed in the newly installed Scrap Metal Recovery Oven per Title 40 CFR Part 761.72 through a method of thermal destruction.  This process is fully permitted under the regulations set forth by Florida Department of Environmental Protection, Permitting and Compliance Authority and EPA Region 4.  The Scrap Metal Recovery Oven is equipped with primary and secondary chambers for material processing and incorporates a Continuous Emission Monitoring System (CEMS) to record regulatory compliance.


The disposal process is performed in a 7,500 square foot building specifically engineered to eliminate any threat of PCB contamination to the outside environment.  The facility incorporates a system wherein all electrical equipment is received and dismantled inside and is stored within our multiple containment system.  The monolithically poured floor is underlined with a 10 mill plastic liner and is finished with two layers of epoxy coating. 


Additionally, Florida Transformer, Inc. is an EPA Region 4 approved Commercial Storage Facility for the storage of PCB material requiring disposal.  The combination of these two regulated activities ensures the utility industry of a limited environmental footprint, thus eliminating long term liability when considering the disposal method of PCB-Contaminated electrical equipment.


Florida Transformer, Inc. looks forward to offering this environmentally preferred disposal service as a compliment to the many products and services currently provided by the Versatile Processing Group.
