Founding Information

"Scepter" refers to the "Scepter Group*," a collection of legally separate, independent companies affiliated through various relationships with Scepter, Inc., a privately held business corporation founded by Garney B. Scott, Jr. in 1986 and headquartered in Waverly, TN.

Today, the Scepter Group* is a recognized leader in aluminum dross and scrap recycling.  Scepter provides its customers with an unbeatable combination of on-spec chemistry, industry-best recovery and competitive pricing.  We have differentiated ourselves through an innovative approach to leveraging furnace technology and talented employees while, at the same time, maintaining a strong commitment to environmentally-friendly practices and a safe workplace.

In addition, Scepter's Commercial Manager (who works out of the Waverly HQ) is supported by a Commercial Assistant in each plant.  This allows us to give each customer corporate oversight as well as a local contact.

Scepter's plants are located in geographically advantageous locations to serve our customers, who are large, medium and small aluminum producers and processors.  We forge long-term relationships with our customers who regularly turn to us for their processing needs.

Scepter's employees are important.  In fact, "People-Safety-Housekeeping" holds the #1 spot on our priority list.  We provide competitive wages and benefits in a safe and productive workplace.  In addition, we pride ourselves in providing our employees with career-growth opportunities while expecting them to be responsible and to uphold Scepter's principles and goals.

Scepter seeks to enrich our communities through partnerships with United Way, United Way Canada, and The Tennessee State Scholars Initiative.
