CEOS of the group


At Oetinger, we are proud of our commitment to sustainability, responsible use of resources, and our employees who give their best day after day.

We know that aluminium is a valuable and scarce resource and are therefore passionate about our focus on recycling a wide variety of aluminium scrap.

Through a diligent smelting and refining process, we transform low quality scrap into high-quality alloys and maximise the use of these valuable resources.

We also offer innovative recycling concepts for the process scrap generated by our customers and a comprehensive closed-loop service that includes logistics, scrap processing, refining and the production of the desired alloy.
