BlackBridge Investments was founded by Jason Stephens and Vincent Fabrico, two college friends who met in 2001 when they were both freshmen at Quinnipiac University.
In 2011, after several years in corporate America , both Vincent and Jason decided to start their own company. They had spent many hours over the years talking about “big ideas” for what they would do differently if they owned their own company. They appreciated the experience they had gained at our corporate jobs, but they believed that they could be even more successful if they were working together and running their own company.
Ultimately, they shared a vision of using productivity and technology to push the boundaries and rethink the possibilities of markets that seemed “safe,” stable, or even “stale.”
They see big opportunities to bring new innovation to the recycling market. They believe that modern technology could be a differentiator for a new kind of recycling brokerage that was willing to innovate and work with a higher level of transparency, agility and responsiveness. So they decided to focus their efforts there. They believed that the recycling industry was ripe for innovation.
Vincent and Jason put in $500 each to start the new company, and on January 6, 2011, BlackBridge Investments was formed.
During the past several years, BlackBridge has established a reputation as the dominant force in the recycling industry. We work with the largest companies, we are expanding into new verticals and moving millions of pounds of scrap, and we use sophisticated technology to find new ways of saving money and passing the savings on to our customers. And all along, we’ve stayed true to the foundation we established back in 2001 when two college friends met for the first time and started talking about big ideas and dreams for the future.
