Precious Metals Industry
Precious metals trading has had a long history at Heraeus. In the 1800's, the company had contracts with Russian suppliers in the platinum group of precious metals.
At Heraeus, modern precious metals trading dates back to 1971, when for the first time, the Heraeus Holding Company conducted trading under a single legal entity.
In 1980, when trading was reorganized, the name Heraeus Metallhandelsgesellschaft mbH (HMG) was introduced and it is still used to this day.
Heraeus precious metals has trading employees in four locations, Hanau, New York, Hong Kong and Shanghai. They support the product divisions and assist customers with all inquiries concerning precious metals. They include physical preparation, hedging risks and the financing of precious metals inventories.
Heraeus covers the entire precious metals cycle, from the mine to the finished product and the company offers large scale recycling.
