Arch Enterprises Receives Better Business Bureau Accreditation

Mexico, Mo (July 2010) - Arch Enterprises, a national precious metal refiner, is pleased to announce their accreditation by the Better Business Bureau (BBB). Businesses accredited by the BBB have met the organization's high standards of approval by demonstrating their commitment to trustworthy business practices. After reviewing the company's history, the BBB has awarded Arch Enterprises an A+, the highest business rating possible.

"We are very excited to be a part of the BBB community," said Julie DiNatale, national sales manager for Arch Enterprises. "This is especially important to us because the precious metal refining industry has recently come under attack due to the questionable sales and business tactics employed by some companies. Historically, our industry consisted of a small group of specialty refiners that serviced jewelers, dentist offices, scrap dealers and manufacturers. In the last few years, however, companies started advertising on TV, traveling around to hotels and evening opening stores offering people cash for their scrap gold. The low returns provided by many of these companies, most of whom are not even refiners, has truly hurt the reputation of our industry. For our part, we have always strived to maintain the trust of our customers with integrity and professional service."

Arch Enterprises not only provides customers with precious metal refining and recycling services, but also aims to educate people about the value of their items. Through its precious metal blog, the company takes the time to answer questions from consumers about gold, platinum and silver recovery. Additionally, Arch Enterprises publishes videos about precious metal refining, offers a free gold and silver calculator and provides extensive educational content on its company website.

"Our goal is to keep customers informed about the industry in hopes that they will become more educated consumers. The BBB's values of integrity, teamwork, trust and respect meshes with our company's values and tradition. After more than 13 years in the industry, it is an honor to achieve this accreditation," said Julie DiNatale.
