Our business is about a lot more than just supplying materials. It’s about working with our customer and supplier partners to help create a better future through everything we do. And as one of the UK’s largest metal recycling companies, sustainability is naturally a driving force behind all areas of our business.
Scrap metal has always had a degree of economic value. But with ever greater focus on recycling and reducing the strain we put on the planet’s natural resources, there’s now a growing appreciation of the environmental benefits metal recycling delivers – and growing pressure for those who use metal to source sustainable options.

We’re actively committed to creating a closed-loop material flow, and support several initiatives to ensure that more and more aluminium products are properly recycled at the end of their life. And we’re using innovative sorting and recycling technologies together with close collaboration involving our direct customers in the food and beverage industry to make it happen.
