Gottlieb, Inc. produces our finished de ox product from 100% purchased aluminum scrap. Our primary feedstock is aluminum turnings, in various forms, packages and chemistries. The plant is able to receive just about any type of scrap turnings packages delivered on any kind of conveyance. Gottlieb’s scrap receiving team is focused on satisfying our suppliers and their transportation needs by scheduling, receiving and unloading scrap shipments in a timely and safe manner. 

True to our company’s core philosophy of innovation and forward thinking, our scrap program continues to undergo changes. As we continue to lead our industry as a high quality, low cost de ox producer, we also want to satisfy the needs of the recycling community and incorporate everyday recyclables into our scrap mix. This brings us to our “next step” in scrap purchasing which is to utilize the non-traditional scrap grade of Material Recovery Facility (MRF) aluminum into our raw material mix.
