Commercial Metals Ltd was established in 1968 and operates as a
family owned business from 324 Neilson Street, Penrose. During our
history, we have earned a solid reputation as a professional recycling
facility, conducting business with reliability, integrity and
enthusiasm whilst providing competitive pricing for both our domestic
and commercial customers. We are able to provide on-site bins with
exchange on 24 hours notice, offer spot prices and co-ordinated removal
on specific projects, and can provide tender submission for ongoing
term contracts. We have an excellent customer base, and are constantly
looking to expand our operations through the development of
relationships with new local and international customers.
We are more than happy to take the time to meet potential local clients and discuss their metal recyling needs in person, and can offer prices upon request.
In New Zealand the manufacturing industry has been a good recycler. In recent years, with growing community awareness of the benefits of recycling, the industry has made even greater efforts. Scrap metal comes from a variety of sources including scrap from off-cuts generated by manufacturers and metal locked up in items that have come to the end of their useful lives. Metal is always useful and can be infinitely recycled with out degradation of product.
The primary function at Commercial Metals Ltd is the collection and processing of ferrous and non ferrous metals. The recovery of scrap metals is an integral part of the recycling loop, and helps to conserve our country’s valuable natural resources. Recent research of commercial construction waste found that more than 90% of steel was recycled. However, demand for steel products greatly outstrips supply from recycled sources, so all recycled material will be used. What is crucial to sustainability for steel is the level of recycling at the end of life.
At Commercial Metals Ltd we work to convert scrap metals into the raw materials that other industries require to produce and manufacture new products.
We operate a modern, efficent and professional scrap metal recycling yard that supplies to both domestic and international markets. As a member of the Scrap Metal Recycling Association of New Zealand we are committed to raising the standards within our industry and educating as to the important role that scrap metal recycling plays in helping to preserve our environment. Our friendly staff are highly skilled, and our combined experience allow us to ensure that the job is done right the first time, whilst offering our customers the assurance of stability, honesty and all the benefits of an on-going service.
Metals are seperated into one of two basic grades which are referred to in the scrap metal recycling industry as ferrous and nonferrous metals. Once a metal has been indentified as one of these types, it is then further categorized into more specific grades for processing. We grade and process our metals according to international specifications which determine the price of the metal at the time of purchase. Please note that prices are regularly subject to change as dictated by the fluctuations in the world market and the NZD/USD exchange rate.
