Bermco Aluminum is a privately-held aluminum recycling and smelting company located in Birmingham. It scraps and shreds salvaged metal at a facility 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 then just a scrap yard. The current CEO is Steve Weinstein.

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 could more than double the company's production.
