Originally built to handle secondary Aluminum, Charles Koetting and a partner bought the plant in 1983 and transformed it into a high end processor of unique and high-purity primary aluminum. The name C-KOE Metals became synonymous with quality. Mr. Koetting later sold his shares in the plant to his partner, only to acquire the entire operation in 2001. Charles, as the sole owner, gave the business his name and opened the doors as C-KOE Metals that year. Since then, the company has earned the respect of customers all over the world. Its commitment to continuous improvement in production, technical investments, global supply chain, and excellent customer service has made C-KOE Metals the premier supplier to many of the world’s leading aluminum users.
