This business was founded in the early 1970’s by the current owners and since then has built up a sterling reputation in the market as a reliable high quality scrap metal dealer. Whilst specialising in the handling of non-ferrous metals the business holds all the relevent licenses, environmental and health and safety certification to handle both ferrous and non-ferrous materials as well as plastics and other such recycleable materials.
The business is able to provide clients with a collection, processing and delivery service offering a total solution for the waste sector, industry and the public community. Strategically located near to superb dockside facilities, allowing it access to near Continental markets as well as deep sea destinations.
The business has invested well in equipment and currently handles approx 350-400 tonnes of material a month. However just with the current infrastructure in place it could quite easily accommodate an additional 100% throughput.
With a comprehensive range of processing equipment, the business is well placed to continue selling its non-ferrous products to discerning quality end users including wholesalers, major retailers and leading refineries and smelters in the UK, Europe and Asian markets.
This market is currently experiencing huge growth partly fuelled by the enormous demand for products in China and Eastern Europe and is expected to continue in the medium term at the very least. The business is well positioned to service this ongoing demand with its ability to handle both ferrous and non-ferrous materials and other such recycled products.
