In 1995, Kent Garvin purchased Nelson Metals and changed the name to Colorado Iron & Metal. In the early years, CIM was a three person operation selling new steel, fabrication, shredding paper, and recycling metal. In 2014, Kent Garvin sold the business to his two nephews, Dan Garvin and Marty Garvin. Today CIM has nearly 20 employees and operates all along the front range with locations in Fort Collins and Loveland, and focuses on scrap metal recycling.
