The business was founded in  in 1921 by Henry Lowe, a rag and bone man.  His son Albert later settled with his family in Manor Road, Grays and this is where the family started its scrap metal business.

From these humble beginnings, Lowes Metals has built up a trusted reputation for buying and selling scrap metal. 


With a wealth of experience and knowledge spanning five generations, we are able to offer competitive prices for all grades of ferrous and non ferrous metals. 

The family business continues to grow and in 2020, we moved to a larger, purpose built yard in Stanford Le Hope.   We pride ourselves on being able to offer a friendly, professional service
