Our Company


The smelter in Nordenham enjoys an ideal logistics
location on the Weser estuary, and has been pro-
ducing lead for more than 100 years. Since the
installation of the new vertical bath smelting furnace
in the middle of the 1990s, Weser-Metall GmbH has
been one of the most modern recycling companies
in the lead sector. This is clearly highlighted by the
use of approx. 70 % lead secondary raw materials
(car batteries, etc.), and only approx. 30 % lead
concentrates.

Weser-Metall GmbH’s corporate philosophy includes
optimising the processes by investment and research,
full compliance with occupational safety and environ-
mental protection regulations, and training young
people.
