Platinum group metals services

At Johnson Matthey, we offer a variety of valuable services to refine your precious metals and manage your metal accounts. Our refining account executives work closely with our trading department to provide you with the latest precious metal prices and market trends.

Refining route for chemical products

We offer an after-life refining route for the range of chemical products, whether that may be spent catalyst such as Ropac or plating salt/solution such as Platinum Q Salt®.

We look after your metal from start to finish and ensure that your fresh product or metal delivered "on time" and "on quality".

Target icon

Shorter lead-times and reduced costs

We offer you competitive advantages by combining the two activities: taking the precious metal refining output directly into the product raw material feed where possible.

Keeping the refining and supply of products with the same company precludes the need to sell and buy back metal which would otherwise lose you the 'spread' or difference between the sell and buy prices.

Metal recovery optimisation & package deals

We work with our customers to optimise precious metal recovery from difficult materials via our technical support teams.

We supply package deals on commercial terms so that you benefit financially from keeping the business with Johnson Matthey.
