Hanau, October 11, 2018

The Hanau-based precious metals specialist, Heraeus, now serves private customers in Germany through its partner, Ophirum. The platform heraeus-gold.de opens up new distribution channels for the company and is a new addition to its existing digital customer services for precious metals products trading. With its new platform, Heraeus is reacting to the consistently high demand for gold among end consumers in Germany.

Via the platform   www.heraeus-gold.de , private investors in Germany can purchase physical precious metal and invest in precious metal with the gold savings plan. Heraeus, the world’s leading precious metals provider, acquired 100% of the Swiss precious metals refinery, Argor-Heraeus, last year, thereby enabling it to single-handedly cater to the entire value chain all the way back to source. This goes for gold as well. Argor-Heraeus has been one of the world’s leading producers of gold bars for decades and in Germany, Heraeus is one of the most popular and well-respected brands of precious metal bars.

“Heraeus oversees the entire supply chain and therefore has single-point responsibility for the production of all precious metal bars. With heraeus-gold.de, we want to meet the high demand of customers for high-quality products from a trusted source,” says André Christl, President Heraeus Precious Metals, of the reasons for setting up the online platform. “We look forward to working with Ophirum who offer the highest degree of professionalism and expertise in the online trading sector.”

The online platform is a cooperation between the Heraeus Precious Metals business unit and the bank-neutral precious metals dealer, Ophirum, which has traded exclusively in Heraeus precious metal bars since it was founded in 2010. Ophirum is responsible for the entire sales processing of the online business and is the customer’s contract partner. Customers purchasing precious metals products can opt to have these delivered or placed in a deposit, or to collect them from one of 14 Ophirum branches nationwide, located in Augsburg, Bonn, Bremen, Cologne, Dresden, Essen, Frankfurt am Main, Hilden, Leipzig, Lindau, Mannheim, Regensburg, Stuttgart, and Würzburg.

Heraeus continues to sell precious metal bars through banks, savings banks, and precious metals dealers.
