Real Alloy Germany GmbH
REAL ALLOY is the global market leader in third-party aluminum recycling and specification alloy production. We convert aluminum scrap and by-products into reusable aluminum 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 aluminum 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 primary and secondary aluminum manufacturing that would otherwise end up in landfill.
We operate 27 facilities strategically located in six countries across North America and Europe to serve global customers and support a customer-driven approach to aluminum recycling and metal supply. Our international headquarters in Cleveland, USA, oversee 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 aluminum scrap and magnesium. Six facilities in 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.
At REAL ALLOY, our mission is to capture the inherent economic value of recycled aluminum by offering environmentally responsible processing solutions. We understand today’s imperative for sustainable resources and are proud to supply global markets with high-quality recycled aluminum. The production of our alloys is not only significantly cheaper than primary aluminum but also requires much less energy and results in far lower CO2 emissions.
Our employees are spread across 27 production sites around the world, yet they are all united by the REAL ALLOY mission. We share a passion for excellence and are committed to integrity and accountability. At each site, our teams have fostered an environment of trust and empowerment, where good ideas are encouraged and setbacks are viewed as learning opportunities. Always tuned in to the bigger picture, we are motivated by a strong sense of responsibility towards our colleagues and our communities.
