Who is EMR?

Our purpose is to be a global leader in sustainable materials. Our network of UK yards buy in metal, which is then recycled at our processing sites, and sent all over the world to make new objects. Every stage of the journey relies on advanced technology; all developed in-house.

We also have a global presence, with metal recycling depots in the USA, Germany, and The Netherlands. Worldwide, we have a multi-billion pound turnover but we're still a family-owned business with our headquarters in the North West.
