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.
