FRANK KELBIE Ltd opened in Milnbank Road, Dundee, in 1946 and is the longest-running, local family-owned scrap merchant in the Scottish city.
The company is now into the fourth generation of the family, and strives to provide jobs for individuals from the local area.
In recent times the company has installed handling and processing equipment, along with a modern electronic weighbridge. From a McIntyre Bigfoot metal baler to a Niton XLF metal analyser, they have the tools for every job.
Frank Kelbie Ltd deals in all scrap metals ranging from copper, brass, lead, stainless steel, cables, light iron, cast iron and aluminium.
All types of mainly non-ferrous scrap metals, stainless steel, and cables are bought by the company in amounts ranging from a few kilos worth up to large amounts from factories, demolition companies, engineers, slaters, electricians, plumbers and other scrap metal merchants.
The company have a fleet of vehicles, which allows them to offer a free skip, roll on-off container and flatbed truck uplift service, as well as a tipper service.
When the metals arrive at either of their two Dundee-based yards, they are carefully graded and processed before being sold on to consumers.
The company is fully licensed by SEPA, and is a member of BMRA.
