Whether it’s refining, processing or trading in precious metals: our intention to uncompromising quality has guided SAXONIA through its more than 400-year history – and makes us today one of the top names in the refining business. The focus of our operations is transparency in the recovery of precious metals, precision in the analysis and evaluation of raw materials and care in the manufacture of quality products.
In everything we do, it is our primary goal to provide our customers and clients with maximum flexibility, punctuality and service readiness. In addition, modern and environment-friendly systems, innovative products, highly motivated and experienced staff and a quality management system certified to DIN EN ISO 9001 demonstrate the efficiency and competitiveness of our company.
