Increase in Demand From Asian Market Spells Good News for Resource Exchange of America and the US Scrap Metal Market

/ Source: GlobeNewswire

SARASOTA, Fla., Sept. 2, 2010 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Resource Exchange of America Corporation (OTCBB:RXAC), a Florida-based recycling company, has reported a rise in scrap offers from Asian markets during the second half of August.

In recent weeks, ferrous scrap offers into Southeast Asia hit $400 per tonne cfr, whilst offers to China reached a high of $410 during the same week. The rise has been attributed to the tightening of supply and an increase in confidence from overseas suppliers, who are rejecting low bids from buyers. Asian mills are currently restocking for high-season production due to begin next month -- a period during which prices are expected to rise even further. 

"Recent demand for overseas exports certainly means great news for both RXAC and our investors. As the markets continue to recover from the global recession, this is an area in which we expect to see substantial growth," commented Dana Pekas, CEO of RXAC. "The news also confirms our long-term goal of expansion into Asian markets -- a market we surely will give our keenest attention over the next couple of months."
