About Us


The Chiert family has been involved in the recycling of scrap metal since 1972. The family business evolved in 1991 with the establishment of Australian Metal Co.
Australian Metal Co. is a recycler and collector of all Non-Ferrous Metals, and Precious Metal Scrap specializing in the collection and processing of auto catalytic converters for the recovery of the Platinum Group Metals contained in them. 
Since its inception, AMC has been one of the leading recyclers of gold and silver from electronics scrap. The diversity of the company extends to the dismantling and recycling of redundant electro-mechanical and electronic telecommunication equipment. AMC is also a large collector and recycler of copper and copper base alloy scrap as well as aluminium, stainless steel and high nickel alloys. AMC holds Environmental licenses to ensure safe handling of all its material. AMC also has facilities for pick up and removal of steel scrap and offer a total factory clean-up service.
Since 2000, AMC has embarked on a collection system to service all wrecking yards wherein we clear out not only the auto catalytic converters, but purchase all Non-Ferrous Metals: "THE ONE STOP COLLECTION SYSTEM."
Super Cat Converters was established in 1995 as the collection arm for scrap catalytic converters for Australian Metal Co. In October 1996 it began importing aftermarket replacement converters from the USA. The business has grown to become a major national wholesaler to the exhaust industry with 6 branches across the country. These branches include Sydney (head office warehouse and scrap yard), Melbourne, Brisbane, Adelaide and Perth.
Super Cat Converters distribute a wide range of products with over 3000 part numbers available. These products include Replacement bolt on and universal aluminized mufflers, catalytic converters, stainless steel performance mufflers, bolt on performance systems to suit most domestic and foreign cars, extractors and accessories. The products are distributed in the following brands: Super Cat Converters, Super Cat Performance, Super Cat Motor Sport, Carsound, and Magnaflow Performance Exhaust.
The combined resources of both companies ensure all customers are given the highest possible service throughout the country. Both companies employ over 65 people and have over 30 utilities and trucks on the road.
The business is a true family business with Max Chiert, joined by three of his sons, Mark, Wayne, and Jared and his daughter Davina.
