Precious metal recycling with affinia Metals - we make the difference
We rely on our experience to make sure we can offer all this in precious metal recycling. The history of affinia Metals started over 60 years ago, when the company was named Zimmer Schrotthandel. Our forward-thinking company, always hungry for innovation, started to disassemble and recycle catalysts in 1985. At that time, Zimmer Schrott- und Metallhandels GmbH was the first company in Europe to begin recycling precious metals from used catalysts. Since that time, we have been working in this field intensively to achieve excellent results for our customers. In changing our name from Zimmer Katalysatoren Recycling to affinia Metals in 2017, we are connecting all of these aspects in a whole new format. Focused, fresh, and with the modernity we want to see in the industry. affinia Metals – an affinity for precious metal recycling and personal service.
