Connecting minerals to new technology

The metals division focuses on non-ferrous metals and associated minerals. We responsibly source from a wide platform of producers and suppliers and offer trading, shipping and structured financing solutions to mining companies, metal refiners, smelters and consumers of metal products around the world.



The metals division operates a worldwide sales and distribution network for battery-grade nickel sulphate and cobalt sulphate, to provide our customers with the technical support and resources they need. These two sulphates, along with nickel hydroxide and nickel/cobalt MHP are critical for the production of most of the world’s batteries, especially Li-ion, nickel cobalt aluminium (NCA) and nickel manganese cobalt (NMC). We offer a stable supply of:

  • Sulphates
    • Battery-grade nickel sulphate
    • Battery-grade cobalt sulphate
  • Intermediates
    • Nickel hydroxide
    • Nickel/cobalt MHP


The metals division is one of the world’s leading suppliers of this specialty metal alloy, accounting for 15% of the global supply. We have achieved this by forming long-standing relationships and agreements with robust world-class partners.

Ferronickel is used in the production of stainless steel. We offer a steady supply of high-quality ferronickel in various grades, i.e. FeNi 20%, 30% and 40%
