Our business is metal scrap. In all shapes and sizes. In all grades. The whole package. Being a modern recycling company, we handle all tasks involving scrap metal and recycled raw materials. Besides purchasing, recycling and selling the material, we also deliver a full range of services for ferrous and non-ferrous metals. Even for products that most people have not yet thought about. Why? Because heading down innovative routes and thinking up new ideas for the future are two important aspects of our day-to-day work. And this is something we have been doing since 1890. A good number of years, therefore, to gather plenty of expertise.
Our metal recycling operations close the loop between the producers of scrap metal and those wishing to reuse it. Reliably. Digitalised. To the highest standard

The scrap metal market is constantly throwing up new challenges: on the one hand, today’s complex composite products are making it more and more difficult to separate the different metals from each other. On the other, steelworks expect a much higher quality material than they used to. And we are there right in the middle providing our metal services. Which is the perfect place to be. We collaborate, for example, with metal processors at the very beginning of the supply chain – enabling us to separate scrap metals at the place they are actually produced. This gives us direct access to the high quality material needed by steelworks and smelters. At the same time, we help our industrial customers to close material life cycles at their place of business and so prevent downcycling. Metal services at their best.
For us, compliance means more than just adhering to rules and laws. The TSR Corporate Values and our Compliance Principles form the guidelines for our daily actions. In all countries and business areas, we base our actions on these legal requirements and ethical and moral principles.
People are at the center of business interactions. Our culture of values and our Code of Conduct are therefore shared and lived by all employees to ensure responsible action.
