Aluminum recycling

It is the basis of our manufacturing that we never forget global resources and the environment.

We, at Ahresty, think it very important as a corporation to contribute to society or people in a big sense in addition to producing better products for our customers.

Kumagaya Plant with plenty of green.

At our Kumagaya plant, die casting products that have been produced in the die casting plant and finished their life on the market, come back to have their life renewed as new material. The plant produces 3,000 tons of aluminum alloy ingots each month. Recycled ingots are widely used for die casting, foundry casting and sheet & extrusion at various customers.

More than 20% of the Plant estate has been planted with trees and this plant has plenty of green.

Aluminum is Environmentally Friendly

Aluminum is a valuable resource, which can be recycled and reused over and over again.
The energy needed to produce aluminum ingots by recycling is equivalent to around only 3% of the energy required to manufacture new aluminum metal from the original raw material bauxite (aluminum ore).
Ahresty proactively promotes and carries out aluminum recycling.
