THE 1970S AND 1980S

The company Schrott-Lassen took over the activities of Christian Lassen, and four years later, Michael Lassen became the managing owner. After a further merger with L. Feldhaus GmbH, Nord-Schrott GmbH & Co. KG was established, employing 30 people at the time.


Nord-Schrott started out in Flensburg with its head office in Lilienthalstraße and a site in Trollseeweg with a 600-tonne Bronneberg shear. The 15,000 m² site in Lilienthalstraße was gradually expanded to 70,000 m², adhering to the latest environmental guidelines. Standard features included concreted areas with waste water sewers, coalescence separators, oil separators, and reservoirs. Regular maintenance and adaptation to new standards were also a matter of course back then, and by the end of the 1980s, the company was expanded to include a shredder and a can mill.


During this period, Nord-Schrott employed 40 people and the vehicle fleet was also continuously expanded.

1990S AND 2000S

In the 1990s, Jens Roed became a partner at Nord-Schrott. The company achieved further expansion in the metal, aluminium, brass, cable and electric motor business with two new metal presses and special vehicles for loading overseas containers.


The site area was again expanded by more than 55,000m² to meet the greater space requirements resulting from increased electronic scrap activities. The Recycling Park in Husumer Straße was opened and a facility for separating mixed metals was commissioned.


Nord-Schrott in Flensburg grew steadily, employing 183 people in an area of 130,000 m². There were 256 employees working for the entire group of companies. A new building on Lilienthalstraße, housing an in-house laboratory to ensure the consistently high quality of our raw materials, and additional heated warehouses were added. We also put another Leimbach shear into operation.


In 2011, Nord-Schrott International, with a trading office in Butzbach near Frankfurt, was founded. Joachim Middeldorf Rohstoffhandel GmbH from Krefeld joined the Nord-Schrott family.


Today, 192 employees work in material processing and the offices at the recycling centre in Flensburg, which has now been expanded to 178,000 m². Globally, 317 employees work for the group of companies.
