American Zinc Products is the only plant in the world that produces zinc solely from recycled sources. As of 2022, zinc has now been claimed a critical mineral by the U.S., a net importer of the metal. Through our process, we transform thousands of pounds of industrial byproduct materials into a valuable commodity that can be sold and reused to make thousands of construction and household products

We recently completed our first year of zinc production and are proud to see how far we have come. Check out our video to hear firsthand from our team who has been with us throughout our ramp-up.

“The team overcame challenges, typical of a start-up of this magnitude and complexity, during the first year of production, and we’re starting to establish our brand as some of the best quality zinc available in the market. Our highest priority is to have a positive impact on the lives of our team members, their families and the community at large to establish AZP as an asset to the Rutherford County community.” – Kobus de Wet, Vice President and General Manager of AZP
