PGM of Texas
Founded in 2010 in Dripping Springs, Texas, PGM’s roots in catalytic converter recycling stretch back to 1999 when CEO Allen Hickman started his first company. Since then, decades of experience and technical expertise have combined to make PGM of Texas an industry leader.
Thanks to strong organic growth and our acquisition of Maryland Core Inc. and Legend Smelting and Recycling in 2021, PGM now has more than twenty locations nationwide. Our facilities house four ceramic auto catalyst sampling lines, foil and O2 sensor sampling lines, more than fifty hydraulic shears, and two wet chemical laboratories.
Our leadership team is comprised of industry veterans and experts with hundreds of years of collective experience and an unyielding commitment to our core values. As part of our shared commitment to constantly improving our industry, we are affiliated with the following organizations: the Institute of Scrap Recycling Industries (ISRI), the International Precious Metals Institute (IPMI), the Automotive Recyclers Association (ARA), the Florida Auto Dismantlers & Recyclers Association (FADRA), and the Texas Automotive Recyclers Association (TARA).
