This is REAL ALLOY

LEADING THE WAY
REAL ALLOY is the global market leader in third-party aluminium recycling and specification alloy production. We convert aluminium scrap and by-products into reusable aluminium metal for a growing number of applications across various industries. Our customers can choose from an extensive range of cast and wrought products made from aluminium and magnesium alloys, delivered to their door in the form of molten metal, ingots, or sows. Liquid metal offers significant advantages in terms of efficiency and cost, so we employ sophisticated solutions and transport logistics to ensure a large proportion of our alloys can be delivered in this form. REAL ALLOY is ideally positioned to respond to the needs of an increasingly recycling-conscious world. Advanced technologies enable us to process a high proportion of drosses and reduce the amount of residual waste from both primary and secondary aluminium manufacturing that would otherwise end up as landfill.

 

INTERNATIONAL EXPERTISE
We operate 23 facilities — strategically located in six countries across North America and Europe — to serve global customers and support a customer-driven approach to aluminium recycling and metal supply. Our international headquarters in Cleveland, USA, oversees an annual revenue of around US$1.25 billion, and our highly efficient recycling plants are operated by 1,800 employees, worldwide. In Europe, we are the leading recycler of aluminium scrap and magnesium. Six facilities, spread out across Germany, Norway, and the UK provide metal and conversion capacity for industries such as the automotive, construction, and packaging sectors. In Germany, we even operate a dedicated magnesium-recycling unit. A large variety of melting equipment is used to efficiently turn various types of low-grade scrap and drosses into specification and wrought alloys, with outstanding properties designed to meet our customers’ requirements.
