In the 1960s, on a small farm in Sullivan, Ohio, Joseph A. Cusato, Sr. and Joseph F. Cusato, Jr. founded the Research Alloys Company. With expertise in machining, Joe and Joe were well suited to move into scrap metal recycling, and to help their Columbus neighbors buy scrap metal, and sell scrap metal. More than fifty years later, Research Alloys Company, Inc. has grown and expanded significantly. Situated in the rising Hilltop neighborhood of Columbus, Ohio, the company now has thousands of vendors and customers in and around all of Ohio and extending into Rhode Island, Pennsylvania, Michigan, Indiana, Kentucky, West Virginia, Alabama, California, Illinois, and Georgia. Research Alloys and Stargate Metals pride themselves on efficient service, industry expertise, competitive pricing, and creative problem solving.
