For over 70 years Hayes has been a processor and marketer of recyclable metals which are refined and sold internationally to customer's specifications.
A progressive third generation family-owned and operated enterprise, the group has gained an enviable reputation for innovation, quality and excellence in its recycling and smelting operations.
By using state-of-the-art induction melting for clean efficient alloying, Hayes primarily produce an extensive range of high quality, low cost copper based alloys in ingot form. These are supplied to foundries throughout New Zealand and overseas for subsequent sand and diecasting of a wide range of components - particularly for the marine and plumbing industries.
White metal alloys for the lining of bearings and for spin casting fine jewellery and other applications are also produced.
