Lusco Corporation is a family-owned scrap metal recycling business founded in 1911 by Louis Smith in Noblesville, Indiana. His son, Joseph Smith, joined the firm in 1946 after serving his country in WWII. Karl A. Smith, the third generation of the family, is the current president of the company.

Lusco Corporation is a full-service scrap metal recycling company engaged in the business of purchasing and processing all grades of ferrous and nonferrous metals. These are sold to mills, foundries and smelters for re-melting purposes. The company purchases scrap metal from industrial, commercial and construction customers as well as the general public. A new 35,000 square foot office/warehouse opened in 2008 and was designed to allow quick and convenient drop off and payment for all our customers. From its humble beginnings, Lusco Corporation has grown to become one of the premier metal recycling processors in central Indiana.
