Auscon – More Than Metal
Perth based Australian Consolidated Metals and Machinery (Auscon) is the largest privately owned scrap metal and iron dealer as well as machinery specialist in Western Australia.
The company was founded by father and sons team Alwin, Paul, Mark and Michael Williams in 1980 with the formation of Kelmscott Recycling Plant. Mark and Paul still head Auscon.
Originally dealing with scrap metal and cars from the company’s automotive recycling arm, Auscon has grown from traditional scrap iron dealers to handle waste removal and large scale demolition and reclamation.
A versatile Perth based company, Auscon operates locally, nationally and overseas. Although equipped for large-scale demolition and scrap metal removal and salvage, the company’s other business activities are broad ranging.
Apart from scrap iron dealers, Auscon is also a licensed machinery dealer. Ask us about front-end loaders, heavy-duty equipment, trucks, trailers and light commercial vehicles today.
The scrap, waste and recycling business is a continuously changing environment, where collection methods and the challenges of urbanisation create new demands for collecting and transporting waste and recyclables.
In catering to industry demands, Auscon:
- Uses Hiab trucks and Morell bin lifts for servicing our fleet of onsite bins ranging in size from 2 to 10 cubic metres
- Excels at industrial demolition and salvage
- Specialises in mine site clean ups
- Purchases ferrous and non-ferrous scrap metals and carries out processing for the export market
- Maintains an extensive fleet of machinery
Auscon’s fleet includes cranes from 8 to 40 tonnes, boom lifts and cherry pickers, front-end loaders and excavators fitted with hydraulic shears and grapples enabling most structures to be cold cut. Cold cutting reduces toxicity problems associated with oxy cutting.
