Why do we do what we do?

It’s all about relationships…family…community.

Berman Brothers is the largest family-owned and operated metal service center, scrap metal recycling facility, and custom metal manufacturer and fabricator in the Southeast. Since 1945, Berman Brothers is devoted to a level of customer service the competition cannot match. While other corporations focus on stockholder profits, we are here to serve our customers, employees, and community.

Because of our family’s deep roots in Jacksonville and rich history in the industry, our relationships are built on decades of integrity and trust. The Berman Brothers name is synonymous with personalized service, competitive pricing, product availability, quick turnarounds and single-source solutions for scrap metal recycling and new metal sales. If we don’t have it, we will find it!
