OUR VISION

We are the best in the world at what we do. We will provide more value, be easier to do business with, and be the desired destination for both our customers and suppliers. We will work effectively to identify and continuously improve those things that set us apart. We expect excellence in ourselves and in those around us in everything we do. We will recognize where we are not the best and do something about it.

OUR MISSION

Our mission is to responsibly capture the inherent economic value of aluminum recycling solutions.

OUR VALUES

We are one REAL ALLOY team with:

  • A passion for excellence.
  • A commitment to integrity.
  • An expectation of accountability.
  • An environment of teamwork, trust, and empowerment.
  • A strong sense of responsibility to our associates and our communities.

EXPECTATION

Real Alloy aims to establish long-term relationships with its customers and understands the importance of maintaining such relationships. We have a customer service group that acts as a bridge between customers and plants, ensuring smooth delivery, processing, inventory management, and product returns. Our logistics team is equipped to handle various freight-related challenges. Our plants strive to be cost-effective producers while striving for maximum recovery and element retention. Additionally, we are eager to collaborate with customers to explore innovative ways to incorporate more recycled content into their products. We recognize that a mere 1% increase in recycling rate can lead to an 8% reduction in the overall product footprint in terms of CO2 emissions contained in the aluminum produced.

OUR JOURNEY

Reflecting on our past, celebrating our present, and inspiring our future.

1950’s

Since as early as the mid-1950's, under various names, many of the plants, now under our Real Alloy umbrella, have been recycling aluminum for our customers.

2015

Aleris International sells it’s recycling business.
Aleris Recycling is renamed REAL ALLOY.

2022

Our Coldwater, Michigan operations are the first plant to receive both ASI certifications

2023

Real Alloy divests from Europe, allowing a greater focus on our North American operations. Also in 2023, all across Real Alloy, receives the prestigious ASI Performance certification. We are proud to be one of the first 12 companies in headquartered in the United States to be certified.

Beyond

The future is brighter with Real Alloy and our environmentally conscious aluminum solutions.

For over three decades, Real Alloy has been a trusted provider of renewed recycled metal and recycling services to various industries in North America, including auto makers, consumer goods, and packaging companies.

As you can imagine, the face of our industry has changed over the years, as has our name.  But the Real Alloy commitment to servicing our customers with the flexibility they have asked for has been the backbone for our success which remains both unchanged and unsurpassed.
