ALM forms part of the 2im Group (International Industrial Metals)

ALM forms part of the 2im Group (International Industrial Metals) and within this group, we are a recycling plant, a manufacturer and lead processor for BS EN 12588 Rolled lead and a manufacturer of high end specialist cast products for Nuclear, Medical and other specialist industries.

Furthermore we are the distributor of all our materials meaning the materials we make have an unrivalled chain of custody. The metal we manufacture is solely obtained from expired car batteries which historically would have been landfill. Today, 2im take these batteries and recycle 96% of all constituent parts leaving only 4% waste (polythene) for which we are now close to finding viable source.

We sell the deconstructed and cleaned recycled polypropylene (battery casing) in the form of high grade pellets. More importantly, we are able to desulphurise the sulphuric acid present in the battery and put this into a process where we extract high grade salt and sell this onto the detergent and glass industry. The salt is so high grade, it’s also FEMA approved for animal feeds.

Truth About Lead


The Truth About Lead is a video in which all the misconceptions of lead are answered. Lead is one of the oldest materials used in building and has been trusted to shelter monumental constructions that were, and in some cases still are, our most important buildings. Stately Homes, Court Houses, Churches, Catherdrals and Palaces all utilised lead as a roofing material due to its availability, low maintenance requirement and longevity.


Lead for many years has been used in some form on every building. In more recent times, lead has been wrongly attributed as a product that doesnt meet modern environmental requirements. Although when looking deeper into the source, it normally stems from an alternative product that’s simply looking to take some of the lead market for its own replacement product, which claims to be greener, yet in a life cycle test will simply fall flat when compared to the performance of lead. In this video, you will hear the argument for lead rather than against and will be pleasantly surprised by how green the material actually is!
