Harry Alter settled in Rock Island in 1900 and took work in a scrap yard that had been operating since 1898. Almost nothing is known about the very early days of that company, but when Morris Alter arrived in America in 1905, he joined his brother Harry in the business, and by 1908, the two men were joint proprietors of Davenport Iron & Metal Company at 522 West 2nd Street. In 1911, the company moved to 425 East 3rd Street. Morris and his son Frank eventually bought the business from Harry in 1920 and renamed it Davenport Iron & Machinery.
In 1935, the company changed names once again and was renamed Alter Iron & Machinery Company. Just a few years later in 1938, the name was simplified to Alter Company and is now known as Alter Metal Recycling. The Davenport yard is now 109 years old.
