As an owner-managed company, TRADIUM GmbH in Frankfurt am Main has been successfully operating for customers from industry and retail since 1999. We supply a range of innovative industries that use technology metals, rare earths and precious metals. These include the electronics industry, the automotive industry, the glass and ceramics industries and dental technology.
In addition to working closely with industrial customers, TRADIUM also offers private investors the purchase of strategic metals as an investment form to diversify their portfolio.
Over the course of its long history, TRADIUM has made a name for itself in the industry worldwide. We have solid relationships with producers and consumers around the world. This is illustrated, among other things, by our cooperation with Beijing JiYa (one of China’s largest gallium producers), which represents TRADIUM as the exclusive representative on the European market. TRADIUM is a partner in Germany for JINWANG (Bismuth producer China) and Vesta SI.
Matthias Rueth founded TRADIUM GmbH in Frankfurt am Main in 1999 as a classic garage company. After many successful years at Degussa, he wanted to dedicate himself as a commodity trader to the exciting future of strategic raw materials. As the industrial demand for his products rise, the company grew rapidly. In 2006, TRADIUM moved to its current location in Frankfurt-Niederrad.
Matthias Rueth opened the partner company METLOCK GmbH in April 2011 in order to better serve the increasing interest of private investors in technology metals and rare earths. It allows industrial and private customers alike to store strategic raw materials optimally air-conditioned. The safety of the goods is guaranteed by a bunker from World War II, which has been extensively converted into a wide-body vault.
In 2003, TRADIUM received ISO 9001 certification. In 2018, REACH registration for the company’s most important products followed. It ensures compliance with environmental guidelines and open communication along the retail chain.
In 20 years of company history, the one-man company has become a renowned, medium-sized, owner-managed company with the best contacts with producers and industry. The core team of family members and experienced colleagues has remained stable, making TRADIUM one of the few constants in the field of strategic raw materials.
TRADIUM GmbH takes its responsibilities as an employer, supplier and part of a global trading community very seriously. As an employer, we ensure that the safety of our employees is guaranteed at all times. We guarantee our customers the use of reliable processes and compliance with the agreed specifications.
We support this claim with REACH certification for our most important raw materials. Reach (Registration, Evaluation, Authorisation and Restriction of CHemicals) refers to the European Chemicals Regulation, which has entered into force since 2007. It is considered one of the “most modern and at the same time strictest chemical laws.”
The aim of this regulation is, on the one hand, to protect consumers and the environment, and, on the other hand, to promote the domestic market, competition and innovation in the interests of sustainable chemical consumption. TRADIUM GmbH has been REACH-registered for its most important raw materials since 2018. Our customers can thus be sure that with us they have chosen a partner who acts transparently and responsibly – and guarantees complete documentation along the supply chain.
In the fight for occupational safety in the global context and as a sign against violations of human rights, we also follow the international requirements on conflict materials.
Every year, we question and redefine our quality goals in order to adapt to the requirements of the market. As an ISO-certified company, we document the quality of our products and services. In order to ensure the consistent quality of our services and organisational processes, TRADIUM introduced a certified quality management system in 2003 in accordance with the EN ISO 9001. TRADIUM works purposefully to continuously improve in all areas and to assume responsibility towards customers, suppliers and employees.
We regularly set measurable quality targets that are in line with our quality policy. The quality policy is regularly reviewed by the management for its timeliness and, if necessary, adjusted.
Environmental protection and sustainable work have always been of great importance at TRADIUM. This starts with the extraction of metals: Strategic raw materials usually come from regions where environmental protection has so far often (yet) not met European standards. As an important customer of the manufacturers, however, we have the opportunity to have a positive impact on this and use it in conjunction with other customers.
As they are used in the field of future technologies, our products also promote innovative ways to protect the environment. Due to their special properties (such as higher electrical conductivity) the technology metals and rare earths distributed by TRADIUM, for example, enable a reduction in material and energy consumption.
TRADIUM also relies on a resource-efficient business concept. We participate in the recycling of Strategic Commodities by offering our industrial customers the purchase of recyclable materials. This TRADIUM then leads back into the metal cycle. In this way, we can make our contribution to a resource-conserving future and a sustainable supply of raw materials worldwide.
