Trade and primary and secondary production

Site Essen

TRIMET’s headquarters are in Essen – the pearl of the Ruhr region. This is where we produce extrusion billets, rolling ingots, and primary die casting alloys for you every day in our foundry. Production embraces a wide range of dimensions and alloys, including high-gloss materials and special qualities produced in accordance with your specifications.

Knowing the project is in good hands
Also based in Essen are our trading staff, who market our products worldwide. They work hand in hand with our experts in financing options for risk hedging, who are on hand to help you realize your projects. 

Thus, Essen is the hub of our supply and marketing activities.
When it comes to raw material procurement, global metal marketing or financing options for risk hedging, our contacts always have an open ear for you. They also ensure the supply of energy, alumina and anodes to our aluminum smelters.
