European Raw Material Services

Hargreaves Associate Company

HRMS is a key supplier of specialist raw materials to major European customers in the steel, foundry, smelting, non-ferroalloy, sugar, limestone, insulation, refractory and ceramic industries.

Raw Materials

HRMS has worldwide expertise in raw material sourcing. This, combined with the Hargreaves Group’s expertise in port operations, material handling, storage operations and logistics, marketing and technical support, creates an ideal platform for the company to compete in the wider European market.

Specialist raw materials are sourced from, amongst others, China, Eastern Europe, South Africa, and North America.

Carbon Pulverisation Plant

At the industrial site of Duisburg, Hargreaves has built a new carbon drying and pulverisation plant to provide a highly efficient, local supply of pulverised carbon product for furnaces in the German steel and other heavy industries. This material can replace the highly sulphurous brown lignite coal often used in such processes.

DK Roheisen und Recycling GmbH

In December 2019, HRMS acquired DK, one of the largest recyclers for ferrous residual materials and a producer of high-quality pig iron for the foundry industry. The DK process also recovers high quality zinc concentrate.
