Non-Ferrous Processing

Non-Ferrous Processing

We provide scrap management services for ferrous materials. Our company has quickly become a market leader, and expanded to also service non-ferrous operations.

Non-ferrous metals are those metals that do not contain any appreciable amount of iron. While ferrous metals are often preferred in this industry – because of the benefit they provide for steel mills – non-ferrous materials are equally valuable in their own right.

Non-ferrous metals are desired by many industries, particularly those involved in construction and automotive manufacturing, for their light weight and resistance to corrosion. In fact, for many industries, non-ferrous metals are actually preferred over steel.

Common types of non-ferrous materials we handle include:

  • Copper
  • Brass
  • Aluminum
  • Nickel
  • Lead
  • Zinc
  • Stainless Steel
