Flexible approach, service minded, broad experience
Raffemet Commodities was founded in September 2013. As traditional commodity suppliers are less able to provide the services that European industrial buyers need, Raffemet Commodities was established to fill this gap. From start-up there are four employees with an established track record in physical metal marketing, futures trading, risk management, logistics and contract execution. All having experienced the change in market dynamics, we are eager to move ahead in service.
Solid financial backup
In order to ensure a solid base for the company, a good match was found with Singaporean-based Raffemet Pte who is the main shareholder of Raffemet Commodities. Established in its present structure in 1997, Raffemet Pte facilitates physical and financial base metal transactions for its Asia based customer base. Raffemet Pte has substantially grown over the last years and has offices in Singapore and Shanghai.
Bridging the gap
Our mission is to service both producers and consumers of primary metals by bridging the gap between sales and purchase requirements in terms of pricing, volume, logistics, storage and payment terms. Our main focus is on primary remelt aluminium for the European market.
Differentiation through service
Our strategy is to act as an intermediary in the commodity supply chain by offering:
- Straight forward off-take terms and/or marketing services to producers,
- Customized sales to consumers in terms of volumes, price, logistics and payment terms.
Different from the typical trading companies that are deriving value from paper and/or physical position taking, our aim is to keep our pricing transparent and earn a service fee by providing marketing and supply services to the industry. Discreet and reliable, we stand out by our flexible, transparent and service minded approach. Our services are further detailed under the ‘Service’ page.
