Bernhard Westarp snaps up ALBA scrap operation

Germany – Germany’s ALBA Group has completed the sale of its Aschaffenburg facility to metals recycling group Bernhard Westarp as part of its business realignment.

Axel Schweitzer, ceo of the Alba Group, explains: ′Our goal is to push ahead with the widely-discussed strategic realignment of our group. This includes further increasing our real net output ratio in the waste and metals segment, and strengthening our focus on those sectors in which we extract new raw materials through technology and innovation in the scope of our combination of waste management, as well as steel and metal recycling activities.′

Mainly a scrap purchasing and sales location, the Aschaffenburg site was part of the Alba Metall Süd Rhein-Main division and handled some 30 000 tonnes of scrap metal last year. Bernhard Westarp currently operates from 11 locations throughout Germany.
