Our History

Our business was first established by Albert Draper in 1922 and continues to this day to be a family owned and run business. It is now managed by the fourth generation of the Draper family.

We are proud of our heritage and whilst the princople of the business has remained the same, we have invested significantly over the years to move the business forward and continue to offer a valued service to our customers.

At Drapers, we recover thousands of tonnes of metal by buying all grades of ferrous and non ferrous metal to crush, reprocess and sell on to other industries for re-use. Over the years we have recycled numerous and interesting metal based items big and small which have included everything from a bicycle to a trawler and a kettle to a steam engine.

Drapers are committed to ongoing investment in staff, equipment and facilities and this philosophy has ensured our continued success and the growth of our business over four generations of our family business.

We operate from a purpose designed site at Black 5 Works just off Hedon Road. This location ensures easy access is available from all directions, including the Port of Hull Docks and major road and motorway networks.
