Shredder: 80 SXS
Al Sale acquired the 80 SXS shredder machine, with a name plate of 216,000 metric tons per year. The 80 SXS provides a competitive advantage for the company by positioning themselves as the only ferrous scrap dealer with the capabilities to provide shredder scrap still to mills; the other scrap shredder within Saudi Arabia, with a capacity of 60,000 metric tons per year.
Currently, Al Sale depends on the scrap shredding capabilities, but with complementary investment, can further extend its segregation process into non-ferrous material. The recovery of other metals such as aluminum, zinc or copper as by-products of the recycling process can increase the operational gross margin. Average numbers in United States estimate non-ferrous recovery rate between 4% and 5% of the manufacturing.
