The story of Umicore goes back more than 100 years, with its long history in the mining of precious metals dating back to the early 1900s. Today’s Umicore group, however, has moved away from its mining roots, and focuses instead on the refining and recycling of precious metals, and the manufacture of specialised products.
Umicore now employees more than 14,000 people in 38 countries, with an annual turnover of around £9bn. And while it generates the majority of its revenues from clean technologies and recycling (for which it has recently topped numerous lists as being one of the most sustainable companies in the world), it’s also notable for the quality of the gold and silver bars it produces.
Umicore gold bars are now one of our most commonly requested gold bullion bars and have quickly become one of the most recognised bullion bar brands in the UK and Europe.
