Welcome UMR Group

The last decade has seen significant expansion in the services we offer. With our long established dominance in Metal Recycling we were able to take and adapt that experience and respond to the growing needs of our clients. We are now widely recognised as specialists in Demolition and in our Tailored Waste Management Solutions. We have invested in a broad property portfolio across Ireland and now offer leasing opportunities in industrial, manufacturing and warehousing facilities.

We want our brand to reflect our growth and let our clients & partners know that we can offer them a wide variety of services. We are more and we do more.

  • Rusal Aughinish contracted United Metals together with Foynes Engineering to dismantle and remove our Inner Berth Loader (350 tonne machine on the jetty terminal for loading ships). These works took place on a live working jetty without disruption to normal operations. There was no accident, incident or safety issue during this 3 week operation. The loader was successfully removed under schedule.

  •  We have contracted United Metals on numerous projects in the food/pharma/oil and gas sectors. These site are complex and restrictive in nature. The high level of competence and attention to health and safety at every stage was exemplary. As a result, projects have come in on time and within budget with zero incidents or accidents.
