History

Magretech was built in 1996 with a sole focus on magnesium recycling. The facility is located in Bellevue, Ohio, approximately 70 miles west of Cleveland and 100 miles south of Detroit.

The company transitioned into new ownership in 2016 and made investments in new technology while simultaneously implementing several process improvements. In 2018, the plant completed construction on an expansion facility that uses some of the most cutting-edge magnesium recycling technology in the world. The expansion greatly increased production output and number of employees. In 2019, the company completed construction of a semi-solid magnesium chip recycling line, the only one of its kind in North America. The recycling line presented a solution to a problem that the industry has grappled with for years, how to properly dispose of highly combustible magnesium chips.

Magretech is an active member of the International Magnesium Association, North American Die Casting Association, The Sanduscky County Economic Development Corporation, and the Institute of Scrap Recycling Industries.

Mission Statement

“Our company is committed to providing high quality products and services that meet or exceed the expectations of our customers.”

SUSTAINABILITY

Magnesium is the 8th most abundant element in the world. While primary production is both energy intensive and produces greenhouse gases, recycling only requires 5% of the energy while also having the same chemical, physical, and mechanical qualities.  Recycling is heavily encouraged within the industry because of its positive impact on the environment. The International Magnesium Association (IMA) estimates that magnesium recycling results in a 50% reduction in demand of primary metal from die casters.

Magretech is a proud member of the Institute of Scrap Recycling Industries (ISRI). Being magnesium recyclers, sustainability is what we preach. We have actively taken steps to become more sustainable through investing in new technologies and processes. We are currently working on patenting a technological process that is intended to eliminate waste.
