We are a family owned and operated scrap processing business that has evolved from selling used parts and mobile car crushing into focusing on buying anything metal: including, but not limited to automobiles, tin, non-ferrous metals, prepared and unprepared steel. Previty’s has been competitively buying and selling scrap metal for over 30 years in our industry.
Starting in 1978, Ron Previty Sr. knew he held a captivated market. People could bring him anything metal and he would pay them for it! He was literally paying them for their JUNK! Not only would customers bring him loads of scrap, he was also able to go and pick it up from them. If it was a larger job he and his crew would take the mobile car crusher and loader to the location and “press” it. Throughout the years he has worked with many different people and businesses throughout the country and has grown to be a well liked and respected business man in his home town and everywhere he goes.
Throughout the years Ron has been blessed to have dedicated, hard working employees to help him keep his business running smoothly. Some have been with the company for over 25 years! Currently Previty’s employs fifteen people, and we pride ourselves on knowing our employees and their families are taken care of.
The second generation is more involved in the business now so Ron can enjoy “retirement”, Ann Marie (Previty) Giboo, has been in and around the scrap industry for 10 collective years. As a Canisius College graduate with a B.S. in Entrepreneurship she knows her way around the office side of the business and focuses on the accounting and marketing strategies that the company will need and use to move forward in what has become a highly competitive industry.
