The Metalor Group, previously Métaux Précieux SA Metalor, founded in 1852, is nowadays a subsidiary of Japan's Tanaka Kikinzoku Group. Metalor has become one of the major world suppliers of precious metals related products & procedures. It makes a wide array of alloys, especially for the watch and jewellery industry, supplying many of the Swiss watch brands, although it has expended its activities far beyond its primary sector.

On September 2016, Metalor Metals was sold to Tanaka Kikinzoku Group of Japan.[3]
