IMCO RECYCLING BECOMES THE WORLD'S LARGEST ALUMINUM RECYCLER

 IRVING, Texas, June 9 /PRNewswire/ -- IMCO Recycling Inc. (NYSE: IMR) today became the world's largest aluminum recycler with the dedication of its new $18 million processing plant in Uhrichsville, Ohio.
 This facility has an annual capacity of 265 million pounds, which increases IMCO's total capacity by 50 percent to 800 million pounds. The plant began initial production last December and will reach full capacity by the end of June.
 The new IMCO facility is the sole supplier of recycled metal to an adjacent rolling mill owned by Barmet Aluminum Corporation, a privately owned manufacturer of products for the building and construction, transportation, and distributor markets. The Barmet mill being supplied by IMCO, on a percentage of raw materials used basis, is one of the aluminum industry's largest consumers of recycled metal.
 IMCO has the exclusive right to recycle Barmet's internal and purchased scrap aluminum for a 10-year period and will supply other customers with output from its Ohio plant once Barmet's needs are met. The IMCO facility replaces Barmet-owned recycling capacity.
 Guest speakers at a dedication ceremony held today at the IMCO facility included Michael DeWine, Lieutenant Governor of Ohio; Norman E. Wells Jr., president and chief executive officer of Barmet Aluminum; and Ralph L. Cheek, chairman and chief executive officer of IMCO.
 Cheek said the IMCO and Barmet plants, "working together, are an excellent example of productive recycling that many types of industries might follow. All of us at IMCO are pleased to be associated with Barmet and we're confident that the new facility will strengthen both companies' operations."
 Norm Wells, Barmet's chief executive officer, said he believes the IMCO/Barmet agreement "is one of the most unique business relationships in the U.S. today. You have two companies with their biggest facilities side by side, and they're totally dependent upon each other for success. We have to perform for IMCO to succeed, and they must perform for Barmet to succeed. We're going to make that happen."
 IMCO Recycling Inc., an important part of the growing resource recovery industry, recycles zinc and magnesium as well as aluminum. Its production facilities are located in Morgantown, Ky.; Rockwood, Tenn.; Sapulpa, Okla.; Uhrichsville, Ohio; and Adrian, Mich. IMCO Recycling's headquarters office is in Irving, Texas.
