WHO WE ARE
We are firm believers in recycling our way to a sustainable future.
As a UK multinational, we work with the cohesive goal of creating a more sustainable planet, leveraging the trade industry of metal recycling by creating usable recycled metal ingots for manufacturers of broad range of necessities.
Established in 2015, with headquarters in the UK and expansions across continents including Africa, we are progressing into a global enterprise within the emerging market spheres. We do this by growing sustai able resources output through recycling, trading, and processing of nonferrous metals.
With the steady rise of profit and revenue with the completion of our phase 1, 2018 CapEx planning, we are now moving forward with our phase 2 strategic growth that includes operations expansion, metals diversification, strong governance, corporate stability, and transparency.
We have a global waste problem. There is too much pollution, landfill, and mining of finite virgin resources.
Our mission is to reduce global dependence on mining by way of recycling and smart waste management.
We want to recycle our way to a sustainable future.
We grow sustainability by collecting renewable waste from discarded landfill within burdened developing nations and refining it into usable metal ingots for the manufacturing of necessities like packaging, vehicles, medical equipment, construction supplies and more. We are currently trading in over fourteen countries across three continents.
We are determined to be a global leader in the processing and trading of secondary materials and we are resolute on increasing global supply of recycled materials to full global recyclable capacity — replacing the need for mining and the destruction of our planet.
We know 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 trade and production growth in emerging markets, while working with sustainable and environmentally-sound operational management and practices.
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 guidelines as we grow to become a major distributor of non-ferrous metals across continents.
We aim to continue building on the company’s success without compromising our core values and principles of communal good.
Our core strategy is to leverage on the combination of our technical know-how and the expertise of our financial partners by utilising renewable waste into sustainable materials for global trade. In 2020, we aim to significantly improve our financial standing by increasing our buying powers and reducing the burden on our working capital.
Our values are not just words, they are everyday decision-making tools we actually use:
Corporate responsibility doesn’t start and end with managing a supply chain. It means investing boldly and fairly in the people involved in the process.
It’s about being excellent stewards of the 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:
We also take responsibility for broader communal impact. As we’re working in developing markets in need of amelioration, 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. We have launched a local buying program for small businesses to access funds for growth and trade in the renewables sector. We have spent a combined £2million to date helping small businesses in our communities increase their agency and prosperity for future development and trade, helping see more successful, cleaner, and healthier communities around us.
Romco Group is ISO 9001 and ISO 14001 certified and accredited. These accreditations provide assurance that waste management and recycling is effectively handled and managed within the company and organisation.
PRODUCTS & SERVICES
Advanced logistical capabilities for delivery and collection are helping us become a global leader in the processing and trading of secondary materials to manufacturers around the world, whilst offering competitive pricing across all continents.
At present, we solely purchase non-ferrous materials, but we plan on expanding other base metals such as copper, lead, zinc, and steel, all the while sustaining energy conservation with renewable materials only.
We buy materials from merchants to companies and councils, and our buying power allows us to offer competitive prices with favourable payment terms. All of our shipments and purchases are insured with AXA.
REASON TO SELL METAL TO ROMCO
We collect renewable waste, recycling and refining it into metal ingots. These are supplied to our partners via long-term contracts (redeemable on request) for transformation into food and beverage packaging, aerospace components, auto parts, batteries, copper pipes, structural components for infrastructure, among other uses. We have significantly increased our supply output to support high demands for 2020, so if you have any trade enquiries please contact us.
There is an environmental imperative in metal recycling: it helps us conserve natural resources while consuming less energy than using raw materials to produce new goods. We utilise a variety of processes to achieve this, but the three stages below are the basics.
The increase in demand for metals in various end-use industries such as construction, electronics, and automotive has driven demand for metal recycling. With the growth in infrastructural activities, increasing industrialisation, consumer demand for responsible corporate recycling quotas, and international declarations for the reductions of green-house emissions, the demand for low emissions recycled materials to replace primary resources is set to increase further.
We leverage the demand for massive energy conservation by investing further on modern recycling technologies. Due to recent investment, we now offer more favourable terms and metals diversity to suppliers, ensuring growth to our operations and performance.
The company has been trading for four years and has an existing proven business model that is in an expansion phase with additional sites and new material collections along with significant smelting upgrades. With the addition of new equipment and working capital, we expect a 600% increase in demand output for this financial year 2020/2021.

WEIGHING & INSPECTING
Materials are weighed and inspected, and the pre-agreed rate is given to the supplier and customer is paid.
PROCESSING THE NON-FERROUS METALS:
Recycled metal is essential in residential, industrial and commercial uses. Material selection for mechanical or structural applications require some additional considerations. Depending on the end-use, metals can simply be cast into the finished part, into an intermediate form such as an ingot, and then worked (wrought) by rolling, forging, extruding or other processes of deformation.
Sustainability is why we got into the recycling business.
We see sustainable practices like recycling as the most important strategic tools for solving the biggest problem we face today: a polluted, warming, shrinking world with ever-decreasing limited resources.
We see sustainable recycling and the development of renewable resources as our opportunity to go green, help reduce pollution, and protect the ecosystem. We do this by focusing our efforts on reducing harmful landfills, carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions, poor waste management, other harmful toxins, and ultimately to eliminate irresponsible virgin mining.
Through our recycling process alone, we save 72,000 kilotonnes of CO2 every year. For each tonne of recycled aluminium we produce, we save up to 12 mWh of power, 4 metric tonnes of carbon emissions, 8 metric tonnes of bauxite from the atmosphere, and 7.6 cubic meters of landfill, as compared to primary production from virgin materials mining.
Our collective work is to reduce global dependence on mining by way of recycling and smart waste management, all the way to a sustainable future.
Our overall bid is to make the planet more sustainable through recycling, with the vision of achieving full global recyclable capacity. We plan to achieve this by expanding and sustaining our successful growth across continents.
We are investors by nature. We invest in our future so we can reduce the harmful effects of raw materials mining and grow a profitable and completely renewable resources chain for a cleaner, greener, and more liveable planet.
