The Scottsboro facility is equipped with a light duty shredder, two rotary furnaces, and a reverbratory furnace for processing scrap.
All incoming scrap loads are weighed in, scanned for radiation, and inspected by our receiving personnel for unwanted contaminants. The material is then processed through our furnaces and casted into the desired finish product. This finish product is then warehoused until the customer informs us of the desired ship to location. Once we have the shipping and packaging information the loads are prepared and eventually loaded onto the customers carrier for delivery to their customer.Imperial Aluminum-Scottsboro is ISO-9001 Certified.
