We recognise that far from being a waste, valuable scrap can often form an essential part of our clients’ production requirements. With this in mind, we always endeavour to segregate and sort material for recycling back into the same alloy series.

This philosophy is aligned to our customers wishing to create a closed-loop recycling effect, encompassing the revert market for some of the more exotic metals such as titanium and nickel alloys.

However, sometimes the mixing of scrap is unavoidable, and as a result we can also offer a wide range of secondary materials for use in a variety of end markets.
