Fine Scrap Metals (Pty) Ltd is one of the country’s foremost metal recyclers. The FINE name has been synonymous with the Kwa-Zulu Natal and South African metal industry since Russian immigrant Jacob FINE, commenced scrap metal trading in Durban with a horse drawn cart in 1903. The company was founded in 1974 and acquired from the FINE family by the present shareholders in 2001, who have maintained the ethos of a successful family managed business.
The company provides full time employment to more than 100 people by recycling 30 000 tons of paper, ferrous and non-ferrous scrap metal per annum, acquired from the general public, the retail sector, informal traders, the manufacturing sector, urban municipalities, government parastatals and other scrap metal dealers.
Daily production activities include the sorting and processing of materials into 100 different international standard “ISRI specification” products, for raw material feedstock supply to secondary smelters and foundries, both abroad and in SA.
