Scott Smith, the former owner of plating supplier Pyromet, passed away March 6 at age 63 in Avalon, New Jersey.

Smith was the owner of Pyromet, a leading silver refiner and manufacturer, from 1996 through 2017. He and his wife, Laurie, purchased the company and elevated a small precious metal refining company to one of the top suppliers of silver anodes for the electroplating industry, as well as the photographic and X-ray film recyclers.

Smith’s employees say he was a leader and always made all those around him better, even through the ups and downs of owning the company for 21 years. He leaves his wife and three children.
