Who we are

As a private, globally active mining and commodities trading company with Swiss roots, we specialise in the mining and trading of metals and minerals. We employ 150 people and expect them to act independently and open up new perspectives. For us, successful commodity trading begins with taking personal responsibility. We constantly question what we have achieved, because our aim is to exceed our customers’ expectations.

Our history

In 2012, one of the company's founders - a group of geologists and analysts - commissioned a study on the risks and opportunities of commodity trading and mining. After several years of preparation and an acquisition phase during which the necessary mining rights were acquired, financing secured and the company built up, the positive results of this study led to the foundation of ACHRO AG in 2017. The company is privately owned.

VALUES OF ACHRO

The core values of ACHRO can be described in five words: Entrepreneurial action, sustainability, quality, innovation and responsibility. These values express our commitment to developing our company for the benefit of our customers, owners and employees. We live these values every day. In this way, we ensure the best possible care for our customers and suppliers, the appreciation and respect of our employees and a performance level that is superior to that of our competitors.

Entrepreneurial action

We think and act entrepreneurially. In our activities, we consistently ask ourselves: What would we do if it were our own company? This approach from the owner's point of view leads us to focus on the individual needs of our customers.

Sustainability

We strive for a partnership-based and long-term relationship with our business partners that is characterized by trust, fairness and reliability.

Quality

 Results at the highest level distinguish us and have brought us to where we are today within a very short time. In order to further develop this strength, we are constantly striving to win and inspire our customers with excellent service, reliability and well thought-out, innovative solutions. Here, we do not make any compromises, but always work together to achieve this goal.

Innovation

We are constantly striving to improve our services and products. We encourage creativity and challenge ourselves to create new ideas and opportunities to meet the dynamically changing needs of our customers.

Responsibility

In everything we do, we are aware of our responsibility. We behave fairly towards customers, suppliers, employees and of course towards nature and the environment. We focus on sustainable development and compliance with ecological and social standards.

Headquarters in Zug - at home anywhere in the world

The headquarters of ACHRO AG and its management are located in Steinhausen / Zug, Switzerland. In addition, we have subsidiaries in Southeastern Europe that operate mines and process raw materials.

Our business model

In order to achieve our high goals and meet the needs of our customers, we pursue a two-pillar strategy. This orientation allows us to react promptly and appropriately to changes in the volatile raw materials market.

Mining

We own our own mining rights in Southeast Europe. This is also where our 38,000 square metre production facility is located, which was realised in cooperation with Gravmax EU Lda, the world market leader in the field of metal extraction and ore processing.

Trading & Operations

In addition to our own mining, production and processing facilities, our experienced trading team is responsible for trading metals and minerals and also offers our international customers other raw materials on request. Our employees take over the entire process and bundle the raw materials in accordance with the customer's requirements. In this respect, our team assumes full operational responsibility and delivers reliably and on time. Our customers have only one contact person who takes care of their individual concerns.

Services

We offer the complete value chain from a single source: From extraction through to trading, sale and delivery of the products to our customers.

Tailor-made solutions and first-class execution

At ACHRO, we attach great importance to the provision of an individually tailored service with a focus on quality, reliability and trust. Thanks to the coverage of the entire spectrum of industrial metals and a strong focus on "Best Execution", customer needs are efficiently and effectively implemented.

Independent and objective

We are deeply rooted in the Swiss tradition of independence and are not committed to any external shareholders. This means that we are always in a position to act in the interests of our customers, employees and society. Independent thinking and short decision-making paths are the keys to successful cooperation.

Long-term thinking

We think long-term and strategically position ourselves accordingly. We focus our corporate decisions on sustainability - for the benefit of all our stakeholders and the entire ACHRO Group.
