FBM - Fundição Brasileira de Metais is a Brazilian company dedicated to offering solutions for non-ferrous metals: scrap and ingots in a broad range of alloys. Its history began in 1976 with the founding of Açomete, which was created from a partnership between experienced entrepreneurs from the metal industry. Fundição Brasileira de Metais é uma empresa brasileira dedicada a oferecer soluções em metais não-ferrosos: sucatas e lingotes nas mais variadas ligas.
Sua trajetória teve início em 1976, com a Açomete que foi criada a partir de uma parceria entre empresários já estabelecidos e com muita experiência no ramo de metais.

Based on a philosophy of striving for quality and customer satisfaction to stand out from the competition, Açomete’s main operations were in metal recycling, specifically the purchasing and sale of scrap, non-ferrous metals.

Following the decision to offer prime raw materials of non-ferrous metals, in 1986 Açomete created FBM – Fundição Brasileira de Metais. The intent was to offer clients ingots in a broad variety of non-ferrous alloys, in addition to scrap. FBM subsequently incorporated Açomete, retaining all the business, values ​​and ideals of the former company. With its robust and streamlined structure, it is always ready to meet and exceed the demands of its clients and suppliers.
