The Recylex Group benefits from unique know-how derived from its industrial history of more than 100 years, its up-to-date technology and assets, its efficient and durable geographical coverage, and its diversified portfolio of suppliers and loyal clients.
In 1881, Peñarroya was created, a company specialising in mining and then metallurgy. This French multinational came to symbolise the industrial revolution and technical progress, characterising the industrial history of the 20th century.
In 1988, the Peñarroya mining and metallurgy company merged with the non-ferrous metals division Preussag, resulting in the creation of the Metaleurop Group. As the mining business wound down, Metaleurop capitalised on its expertise in metal transformation to specialise in recycling.
In 2007, the group became Recylex, to reflect this new strategy and position itself as a key player in recycling in Europe. Currently the third-largest lead producer in Europe, the Recylex Group has operations in France, Germany and Belgium, comprising around ten production plants and has close to 675 employees.
Recylex SA is listed on NYSE Euronext Paris.
