We buy all grades of non-ferrous metals

Globally EMR handles around 800,000 tons of non-ferrous metal every year and we buy all grades including aluminum, brass, cable, copper, lead and stainless steel and many more. We have long-standing relationships with many of our customers which is testament to the excellent service we provide based on competitive prices, honesty and efficiency. While it will feel like you're dealing with a local independent, you are guaranteed the unshakeable reliability and pricing-power of a large global organization.

Who do we buy from?

We take non-ferrous metal from anyone who produces it including the general public, other scrap metal merchants, construction and demolition contractors, local trades and businesses, manufacturers, blue-chip organizations, government bodies and service providers and many more. All metal is paid for by weight on our accurate weighbridges and small scales. Our attitude towards honesty, integrity and service is valued by our long-standing suppliers and we strive to implement these attributes at all times.
