History

IMR – past and present

History

In its 10-year history, Innovative Metal Recycling IMR made a name for itself as the leading metal recycling company in Germany. Since our foundation in 2008, we have grown fast and been able to continuously expand and improve the range of services and products for our customers and suppliers. More growth also resulted for us in a steadily increasing number of employees whom we have always felt committed to. One of the main objective of IMR is to become, short term, one of the leading employees brands in Krefeld and Siegen. For that reason, IMR is meanwhile participating in a multitude of business and social initiatives at a community level and continuously expands its offer for social togetherness and the health of its employees.

At the end of 2018 IMR already has 129 staff.

That includes 38 administrative and 89 vocational employees, plus 2 apprentices.
