PODCAST: Aluminum Supply Chain

Aluminum Supply Chain

And the Impact of Scrap Metal Recycling

Let’s talk supply, demand, and availability of aluminum.

Like many materials, the price of aluminum has doubled in the last year. Why?

Energy costs, labor, and government regulations all impact the cost of aluminum. With material demand outpacing supply, availability is also a hot topic. It’s imperative you have a supply chain you can trust and build relationships in the market.

Scrap Metal Recycling

Did you know that 75% of aluminum ever produced is still in use today? That’s because there is no limit to how many times aluminum can be recycled! While scrap metal recycling doesn’t alleviate stress on the primary aluminum market, it is still an important market to explore.
