EMR is a global leader in metal recycling. We are privately owned with a heritage dating back to the 1940s and employ around 4000 people operating at 150 locations around the world.
Our core business is the recycling of scrap metal from a range of sources such as End-of-Life vehicles/consumer products, industry, construction and demolition. This results in sales of recycled commodities of around 10 million tonnes a year. We have extensive ferrous and non-ferrous operations worldwide and produce over 100 grades of high quality recycled materials which are taken to market by our substantial road, rail and shipping network.
Supporting our core activities are a range of specialist divisions including industrial clearance, total waste management, ship breaking, servicing local government service providers, solder production, cable, copper and aluminium granulation facilities and environmental consultancy. Also, through our own and our joint venture activities we are working towards becoming a zero waste company.
EMR is a reliable and financially robust market leader which is demonstrated by the fact that we continue to grow even in difficult economic conditions. We maintain our position at the forefront of the industry for innovation and integrity whether you're selling to us or buying from us and strive to provide the service of a local independent, with the capabilities of a large corporate. We are also committed to corporate social responsibility, to our workforce, local communities, our customers and the environment.
