Bermco Aluminum is a privately-held aluminum recycling and smelting company located in Birmingham. It scraps and shreds salvaged metal at a facility at 2201 5th Avenue North in Bessemer, and smelts it into sows and ingots for industrial use at a site near Sloss Furnaces at 3230 Messer Airport Highway.

The company was founded in the 1920s by Fred Berman as the Berman Brothers Iron & Metal Company, and was originally just a scrap yard.

In 2010 the company announced plans to relocate to a new facility in Lincoln, closer to its main automotive-industry customers. The proposed $10 million plant would have more than doubled the company's production.

In July 2015 Bermco, then headed by CEO Steve Weinstein, was acquired by the Toyota Group of Kariya, Japan. It now operates as a subsidiary of Toyota Tsusho America.
