Vulcan Detinning Company
Originally known as the Vulcan Material Refining Company, this company was incorporated in 1902 in Sewaren, New Jersey after a merger with the Vulcan Western Company. Both companies were the brainchild of German entrepreneur Adolph Kern. Kern’s business plan was to purchase tin-plate scrap and perfect an economical method for reclaiming tin from the scrap, an important accomplishment in view of the limited supply of and growing demand for tin.

In 1956, Birmingham Slag merged with the Vulcan Detinning Company, forming the Vulcan Materials Company.
