Sims Metal Management is publicly listed on the New York and Australian Stock Exchanges (NYSE: SMS, ASX: SGM) and handled nearly 14.5 million metric tons of recycled material in fiscal 2012.
Sims Metal Management buys ferrous metal from metal dealers, peddlers, auto wreckers, demolition firms and others who generate obsolete metal, and from manufacturers who generate industrial metal. Sims Metal Management processes ferrous metal 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.
We source non-ferrous metals from manufacturers, known as production offcuts, and from generators of electricity, telecommunication service providers, as well as others, who generate obsolete metal. Peddlers and metal dealers, who collect from a variety of sources, also deliver material directly to our facilities. In addition, significant quantities of non-ferrous metal are sourced as a by-product, which is referred to as NFSR, from our ferrous shredding operations.
Our facilities are able to handle a myriad of types of ferrous and nonferrous metals and we have the years of experience in the industry to handle any job for your business. We service accounts nationally and internationally, and buy material from scrap metal dealers throughout the world.
