The History of Argor-Heraeus

Heraeus SA is a German, multinational hi-tech group that has operated in the precious metal industry since 1851, being one of the oldest and largest German family-owned companies. Argor SA was founded in 1951 in Chiasso, Switzerland. Later, the Union Bank of Switzerland acquired the company in 1973. In 1986, UBS and Heraeus Group from Germany formed the joint venture and the Argor-Heraeus S.A. was established. In 1988, the newly formed company changed its headquarters in Mendrisio, Switzerland. In 1999, Heraeus Mint acquired 100% of the company. Later this year, another shareholder joined Argor-Heraeus – Commerzbank International – and in 2002, the Austrian Mint also entered the boarding of the company. Commerzbank is one of the key players of the German financial services while the Austrian Mint has over 800 years of minting history, being famous for its “Wiener Philharmoniker” gold and silver bullion coins. The Heraeus Precious Metals North America opened a new office in Chile in 2004. The company also formed the Deutschland representative in the same year, and in 2006, opened the Argor-Heraeus Italia.
