Who, what and how

Who, what and how

Our activities Our core activities at Metaalhandel Ketting are the purchase of nearly all types of scrap ferro and non-ferro metals from companies and private individuals, the grouping, sorting and processing of these materials and ultimately the sale of these materials to industrial clients for re-use.

Our vision Metaalhandel Ketting started in 1959 in the village of Pernis as a one-man business specialising in the collection of scrap metal. In the years that followed, this modest enterprise developed into a small-scale family firm. In the 1980s – a difficult period for the sector – the company moved to an industrial estate, where it developed into the modern, medium-sized metal recovery firm it is today.

This brief history gives a sense of how strongly professional knowledge and expertise are embedded in our firm. However, you need more than just know-how to survive in today’s metal recycling sector, which is becoming more and more professionalised by the year.

It is of vital importance to our business operations – and those of our clients – that we stay up to date on new trends in the sector, use advanced scrap handling equipment and pay close attention to the environmental aspects of storage and processing.

By consistently investing in such facilities over the past decade, we are able to offer our clients a wide range of modern storage and processing options, environmentally responsible procedures and all the requisite transport and environmental permits.

In the years ahead, we will continue on this course. As a result, we can accept virtually any type or form of scrap metal from our growing customer base and ensure that it is processed in a manner that is both environmentally and economically responsible.

Thanks to our flexible organisation and personalised approach, we can guarantee the swift and efficient settlement of your orders and projects. Moreover, our solid infrastructure and professional expertise mean that we can process virtually any load or item – regardless of its volume or dimensions.

This combination of key strengths is what makes Metaalhandel Ketting your professional and reliable partner for the processing of scrap metal.
