Romco is a UK multinational non-ferrous metal recycler with an emerging market focus. We work with the goal of creating sustainability, leveraging the trade industry of metal recycling by creating usable recycled metal ingots for manufacturers of a broad range of necessities, reducing the need for raw materials mining. Established in 2015, with headquarters in the UK and expansions across continents including Africa, we are a growing recycled commodities enterprise focused on communal and global impact.


“Transforming the production of metals to help solve the climate crisis”.

We have a serious metals production problem. Aluminium, for example, is responsible for almost 3% of the world’s 9.4 Gt of direct industrial CO2 emissions. That's the production of just one metal.

We also have a serious waste problem. Consumption and waste are increasing at exponential rates — aluminium demand is expected to grow 80% by 2050 (IEA). We continue to mine more every year to keep up with demand.

By recycling more metals from waste, particularly from burdened developing nations, we can reduce GHG emissions by up to 95%, improving our total GHG contribution to climate change, whilst diverting waste from landfill and limiting the need for raw materials mining of our dwindling ecosystems.


Our vision is to become a global leader in the processing and trading of secondary materials to achieve ‘full global recyclable capacity’.

Eliminating the impact of destructive materials practices requires boldness, integrity, efficiency and a one-track sustainable mindset.

We are meeting the demand for massive energy and environmental conservation with ambitious investment in recycling production growth in emerging markets where the most neglect and irresponsibility occurs.


Romco Group has adopted the Quoted Companies Alliance (‘QCA’) Corporate Governance Guidelines as an enabler of the company’s long-term success and development.

We exist in accordance with the QCA guidelines as we grow to become a major distributor of non-ferrous metals across continents.

Romco’s success is pivotal on strong governance, principles of communal good, and adherence to our core values.


Our values are not just words, they are everyday decision-making tools critical to our success.

Integrity, Efficiency, Boldness, and Sustainability are the primary values we use to determine our direction.

They underpin every crucial Romco decision from inception to date, and are owed the lion’s share of praise for our achievements.


Sustainability doesn’t start and end with managing a supply chain. It means investing boldly and fairly in everyone involved in the process.

It’s about being stewards of individuals, communities, and the environments we operate in.

Our ethics demand we take responsibility for what’s in front of us, so our focus starts with individuals:
  • No matter the job, gender, age, sexual orientation or race, everyone in The Romco Group has equal access to health, safety, personal development, fair pay, and growth opportunities.
  • We are committed to paying above the national living wage in measurable sectors within emerging markets.
  • In nations or regions where healthcare is not publicly available or free, underfunded and/or insufficient, we have committed to the funding and provision of private healthcare insurance, or appropriate equivalent, for every employee in the Romco Group. Quality care for the health and safety of our staff is a top priority and is the minimum we can do for those a part of our vision.
  • We recently launched a personnel growth initiative, ‘The Pursuit Program’, for all staff, which funds studies at a local technical school for the advancement of technical job skills, to help individuals reach their career potential — even if it’s not with us.
  • Romco is funding an internship program for local metallurgy students to apply their trade and learn a practical skills application in the renewable metals market. Guiding bright talent into sustainable metals production instead of raw materials mining is critical to the reduction of toxins, CO2 emissions, harmful waste and irresponsible practices we want to see in our communities.
  • We are proactively anti-child labour, including inspections of our broader supply chain. Child labour is a serious problem, albeit sometimes a less obvious one from a UK viewpoint, so Romco have taken the necessary measures to ensure no individual is taken unfair advantage of in developing nations.

As we’re working in developing markets in need of amelioration, we also take responsibility for broader communal impact. We’ve made the bold decision to invest tangibly in the small businesses we work alongside, helping to create thriving local businesses in the sustainable sphere via our Small Business Buying Program.

This program builds wider recycling infrastructure by developing local organisations’ and entrepreneurs’ ability to participate meaningfully in the secondary supply chain. We help grow responsible and sustainable businesses alongside ours. It’s about increasing agency and prosperity for the continued development of the sustainable sphere.

What is ISO 9001?

ISO 9001 is defined as the internationally recognised standard for Quality
Management Systems (QMS). It’s the most widely used QMS standard in the world, with over 1 million certificates issued to organisations in 178 countries. ISO 9001 provides a framework and set of principles that ensure a common-sense approach to the management of your organisation, to consistently satisfy customers and other stakeholders.
