Who we are

IMR was created in October 2020 as a result of the alliance between ArcelorMittal Long Products Canada and Triple M Metal. Since the creation of the joint venture, IMR has been in continuous expansion. An acquisition in March 2022 has been completed, and that’s just the beginning.

At IMR, we recycle over 1 million tonnes of ferrous metals annually. We have 8 sites in operation in Quebec. We buy from all types of suppliers, processors and sell the ferrous and non-ferrous metals we recycle to give them a second life.

We work to protect the environment. We aim to create a circular economy with all our partners, suppliers and customers. This synergy is crucial, and enables all stakeholders to do their part by recycling different types of steel and alloys.
