European Metal Recycling buys Henry Gray Scrap Metal


Major scrap metal firm European Metal Recycling (EMR) has acquired Scotland’s Henry Gray Scrap Metal.

As a result of the purchase, EMR now has seven depots in Scotland and takes its total number of UK depots to over 70.


EMR has installed a new double weighbridge at the Randolph Place site in Fife to improve on-site efficiency and prevent congestion at the entrance.

The founder of Henry Gray Scrap Metal, William Gray, has joined the EMR management team along with his sons William and John.

He said: “This is an exciting opportunity we couldn’t pass up. It’s business as normal for us, but with the added security and backing of one of the world’s biggest and most successful scrap metal companies.”

EMR manager Andrew Sheppard added: “We’re looking forward to building the already strong Henry Gray Scrap Metal business and have welcomed the founding family into the EMR Group.”
