Traded in other countries:MT5.Germany
Metalico Inc was originally organized as a Delaware corporation in 1997. The Company along with its subsidiaries operates in two distinct business segments: (a) scrap metal recycling and (b) lead metal product fabricating. The Companys operating facilities include thirty-one scrap metal recycling facilities, including a combined aluminum de-oxidizing plant and four lead product manufacturing and fabricating plants. In the Scrap Metal Recycling segment, its operations mainly involves the collection and processing of ferrous and non-ferrous metals. It collects industrial and obsolete scrap metal, process it into reusable forms and supply the recycled metals to its consumers that include electric arc furnace mills, integrated steel mills, foundries, secondary smelters, aluminum recyclers and metal brokers. The Company acquires unprocessed scrap metals mainly in its local and regional markets and sells to consumers nationally and in Canada as well as to exporters and international brokers. Some of the metal commodities it recycles include steel, copper, aluminum, stainless steel, molybdenum, tantalum, platinum, lead and many others. In Lead Fabricating segment, through four physical operations located in three states, the Company consumes approximately 40 to 45 million pounds of lead metal per year that are utilized in more than one hundred different base products. Its products are sold nationally into diverse industries such as roofing, plumbing, radiation shielding for pharmaceutical and power generation, electronic solders, ammunition, automotive, Department of Defense contractors, and others. The Company sells its lead fabrications nationally. Products are sold to distributors, wholesalers, the plumbing and building trades, equipment manufacturers and other consumers. Its lead fabrication facilities compete against two fabricators of similar, but limited products based in the Southwest who distribute nationally and several smaller regional producers of similar products.
