The birth of CJ Metals
Once Colin had decided to set up his own business, he opened his first yard in Keighley called CJ Metal Recycling Limited. His desire to succeed and hardworking ethic led him to purchase the yard next door due to the success of his growing business. This is where he opened his first car spares/de-pollution unit CJ Metal Recycling Limited Spares.
Colin has always accredited much of his success and good fortune to the support and guidance his parents have given him throughout his life; his mum Jennifer has always been there to help him with sound advice and moral support while his father David was always there to pass on his wisdom, experience and desire to succeed. Sadly Colin’s dad, mentor and best friend David passed away on the 6th November 2009. Colin firmly believes that the success of his company could not have been achieved without his father inspiration and leadership.
On the back of the success in Keighley, CJ Metal Recycling Limited has continued to grow and on 03rd June 2013 Colin proudly opened his third depot at Horbury near Wakefield, with the intention of making this new yard one the most well equipped state of the art recycling facilities in the area.
