Grayson Alexy is the founder and President of Alexy Metals. He entered into the refining and recovery business because he could not find a suitable foundry that could process brazing alloys without losing 4-8% of the precious metals in the alloys. Partnering with a local jewelry maker, they developed a unique process that extracts all of the precious metals from brazing alloys. A process much different than karat gold and sterling silver used by most refineries.
Mr. Alexy got his start at a braze preform manufacturer and distributor for brazing alloys located in Parma, Ohio in 1991. He held many positions there from a warehouse worker to The Vice President of Sales and Marketing. Focusing on (telemarketing) sales, Grayson took the company from a regional, to national, to International organization. The company experienced unprecedented growth during his time and along with his team grew the organization over 2400%.
Mr. Alexy is an active member of the American Welding Society’s C-3 committee on Brazing and Soldering and will be the Chairman in 2017. Mr. Alexy has been published in the Welding Journal and other leading industry magazines and received his first Patent in in 2003.
Mr. Alexy received his MBA from the Weatherhead School of Management at Case Western Reserve University in 2009.
