Arch Enterprises Adds Industrial Chemical Catalysts to their List of PGM Refining Services

Mexico, MO (January 2012) -- Arch Enterprises recovers and refines Platinum Group Metals (PGMs) including platinum, palladium and rhodium from chemical catalyst applications. The precious metal refiner works with variety of markets that have the need to recover and refine chemical catalysts including automotive, pharmaceutical, and chemical manufacturing facilities.

"We work with large and small companies that have industrial chemical catalysts and don't want to wait up to 23 weeks for a return," said Stacy Slater, national sales manager for Arch Enterprises. "Some PGM refining operations work only on their terms and can be difficult to contact and inquire about PGM shipments."

Arch Enterprises' turnaround time on PGM shipments can be little as 10 days. The company can handle large and small volumes of material on a regular basis, but recommends sending at least 10 ounces or more of PGMs in one shipment. Arch can help arrange freight for companies that have a large amount of material or special shipping instructions.

"Our facility is ideal for working with customers to refine PGMs. You will always get a real person answering the phone about your shipment. And since we have been in the business for over 13 years, we have the expertise and contacts to refine industrial chemical catalysts that can be difficult for less experienced and smaller refiners," said Stacy Slater.

In addition to refining PGMs from chemical catalysts, Arch refines palladium and platinum wire, EP catheters, and other metals. Arch works with automotive, pharmaceutical and chemical manufacturing companies around the nation to recover and refine PGMs. The company also maintains an A+ rating from the Better Business Bureau.
