Shred with confidence


Who We Are

Global Partners was established in September 2002 by the two principals, Patrick Comparin and Valerie Horvat. Today, we are a four-person company with over 90 years of combined experience in the foundry and scrap metal recycling industries. Our mission is to supply the best value, highest quality wear parts and spare parts to our customers on-time, every time.

Global Partners has traveled extensively to identify and partner with the best alloy and manganese foundries in the world.  We are the exclusive North American sales agent for Stahlwerke Bochum GmbH (SWB) located in Bochum, Germany.  The SWB differentially heat-treated alloy hammers have been the benchmark of the metal recycling industry ever since we introduced them to the North American marketplace in 2004.

We can offer solutions for all your shredding needs through our hands-on operations experience. We are available for consultation 24/7.

Strong Relationships

We take pride in our longstanding relationships with both our customers and our suppliers. In good times and bad, we are able to leverage those relationships to maximize profitability for everyone.
