Jacob Metal Group

We make recycling possible. Always and everywhere.

Internationally active, regionally rooted and anchored in tradition – the Jacob Metal Group is one of the world’s leading family-owned companies in the field of metal recycling.

For us, there’s no such thing as waste, just raw materials.

We stand for safe and environmentally compatible recycling of nonferrous metals from the industry and trade sectors. By professionally processing these metals, we produce valuable recycled raw materials, which we then return to the economic cycle. Recent events provided a vivid demonstration of what it means when raw materials become scarce. A virus crippled the global economy, then a cargo ship blocked the Suez Canal. Recycling is becoming ever more important when it comes to the supply of raw materials and is increasingly evolving into one of the key technologies.
