Alpha Expands Reclaim Services in Mexico with Export License


Reading time ( words)

Alpha Assembly Solutions, the largest solder manufacturer and recycler in North America, received from the Government of Mexico a license to export nationalized soldering material scrap to the United States, expanding Alpha‘s reclaim capabilities and services to customers in Mexico. 

The license was issued by SEMARNAT (Secretaría de Medio Ambiente y Recursos Naturales), the Department of Environment and Natural Resources in Mexico. Alpha has been importing reclaim materials from Mexico under the Immex program for many years. However, this new license expands the scope of services that Alpha can offer to customers by allowing the handling and transport of nationalized scrap solder paste, solder paste debris, solder dross and other tin bearing materials. “Alpha is committed to sustainability throughout our business channels,“ said Mitch Holtzer, Director of Reclaim Business. “This license expands the positive impact Alpha’s reclaim program can have on the rapidly expanding electronics assembly market Mexico“. 

Alpha has been actively recycling solder and electronics waste in North Americas for over 30 years.  Capable of processing all varieties of waste materials, Alpha has the technological edge for maximizing the recycling of solder paste and related solder paste debris, including used jars, dispensers, and stencil cleaning paper.
