Tucson Iron & Metal started as a scrap yard in 1986 by 3rd generation scrap metal dealers Tandy & Gary Kippur. Over the years customers kept coming in to purchase metal for different projects they were working on or artistic pieces they were creating. Tucson Iron & Metal is a large-scale scrap metal yard with heavy machinery, forklifts, and magnet cranes. In order to keep our customers happy, fulfill all their metal needs, and do both of those in a safe way- Tucson Iron & Metal Surplus opened its own yard in 2017 across the street from the Scrap yard.
Now, you can walk around our four-acre yard and pick out the new, used or surplus metal piece needed for your next art, home or business project. There’s no office staff or outside employees that work harder or are more customer-friendly, and with a combined total of 75 years in the scrap-metal business…well, our employees’ experience speaks for itself.
You can find examples of our work in the photos section, or stop by and see some of our on-site structures including an authentic chicken coop, complete with real chickens and eggs.
