Beginning in 1914 Sims Metal Management, has grown to be the largest scrap metal and electronics recycler in the world, with over 6500 employees in 2500 locations across the globe.
Processing in excess of 1.5 million tonnes of material throughout our Australian branches, The Sims Metal recycling operations are geographically diverse with operations worldwide. Sims Metal Management has grown its reputation for excellent material and quality through countries including the United States, New Zealand and the United Kingdom.
The work done at SIMS comprises of a large network of processing facilities, many with deep-water port access, supported by an extensive network of feeder yards, from which to source recyclable ferrous and non-ferrous metals.
We buy a wide range of metals both ferrous and non-ferrous, from a large range of sources, including the public, metal dealers, auto wreckers, demolition firms, farmers and others who generate obsolete metal as well as manufacturers who generate industrial metal. We also process ferrous metals for resale through a variety of methods, including sorting, shredding, cutting, torching, baling or breaking. After processing, ferrous recycled metal is sold to end users such as electric arc furnace mills, integrated steel mills, foundries and brokers.
Our non-ferrous metals are sourced from manufacturers, known as production offcuts as well as generators of electricity, telecommunication service providers, and others, who generate obsolete metal. Peddlers and metal dealers, who collect from a variety of sources, also deliver material direct to our facilities. In addition, significant quantities of non-ferrous metals are sourced as a by-product, which is referred to as NFSR, from our ferrous shredding operations.
Sims Recycling Solutions is a global e-recycling business. We have established operations in the United Kingdom, Continental Europe and North America and are developing a presence in the Asia-Pacific and African regions.
