Armco Metals Holdings,Inc. is dedicated to providing sustainable, efficient options for steel production. Companies that choose to utilize recycled scrap in their steel production incur numerous benefits, including using up to 60% less energy and reducing air and water pollution by 86% and 76%, respectively. The energy reduction alone translates to significant savings for steel producers annually. In order to address our customers demands for more responsible material choices—and aligning ourself with the Chinese government’s green initiatives—Armco Metals has created our own recycling facility, capable of producing cost-effective, environmentally friendly solutions for the country’s steel production needs.
Founded in January 2007, Armco (Lianyungang) Renewable Metals, Inc., is the core asset of Armco Metals, focused on recycling and processing scrap steel or use in China’s steel production industry. Located on 32 acres in the Banqiao Industrial Park in the Lianyungang Economic and Technological Development Zone, Jiangsu province, this state-of-the-art facility boasts one of the most advanced recycling systems in the world—a Texas Shredder Lindeman System. Our advanced system automatically shreds, sorts, and separates the recycled scrap steel, efficiently processing the highest-quality material for our customers.
Currently, Armco Renewable Metals is capable of processing one million metric tons of scrap metal annually. In addition, we are in the early research and development phase for Armet (Lianyungang) Holdings, Inc., a subsidiary of Armco Metals that will focus solely on automotive scrap steel recycling. The automotive industry is one of the largest sources of scrap steel, and Armco Metals recognizes the potential this market has for meeting China’s steel production needs.
The facility itself is located only five miles from Lianyungang seaport, one of China’s major deep-sea ports. These factors, along with easy access to the convenient highway system and the Beijing-Hangzhou Grand Canal, make Lianyungang optimal for importing, processing, and distributing the recycled steel scrap. Armco Metals obtains our quality scrap steel for recycling from numerous sources, including local collectives; imports; government auctions; and, as mentioned above, the automotive market. Our controllers investigate the quality of the scrap we purchase and continue to evaluate the product through processing and distribution.
