Corporate Profile


Corporate Profile

A-1 Specialized Services & Supplies, Inc. is the world's leading recycler of platinum group metals (PGM) from automotive catalysts, managed in accordance with the highest standards, as certified under ISO 9001, ISO 14001 and OHSAS 18001. A-1 is headquartered in its own 350,000 sq. ft. facility in Croydon, Pennsylvania, north of Philadelphia. 

The Company has two principal lines of business: the processing of salvage automotive catalytic converters, obtained worldwide from networks of dismantlers, scrap yards, parts dealers, and manufacturers, to recover platinum, palladium and rhodium, and the marketing and sale to consumers of these same metals in commodity-grade form. 

With more than 30 years experience in the recycling and commodities markets, A-1 continues to grow. The recycling business has expanded by the addition of new suppliers of salvage converters in Europe, South America and Asia, by the processing of other salvage PGM materials, e.g., platinum spark plugs, oxygen sensors, non-automotive catalyst, and by the expansion of process capacity.  The commodity-grade PGM purchase and sales business has expanded by the addition of new sources and new customers and, prospectively, by the extension of A-1's market capabilities to commodities other than platinum, palladium and rhodium.
