KME AG and Viant Commodities have signed a JV agreement. 

The newly set up company, Tekvalia AG, is based in Zug, Switzerland and focuses on distribution of copper products and providing support and supply chain solutions for the copper industry. 

Tekvalia is the result of a shared idea of Viant and KME to create a company combining extensive knowledge of the non ferrous market (refined, semis, and scrap) of KME and Viant’s long standing experience, expertise, and skills in the business of metal trading. 

Viant is a non ferrous metal’s company set up in early 2016 by its management with offices in Singapore, Hong Kong and Shangai.

One of the competitive advantages of KME is the strategic location of our foundries in the heart of Europe.

Requested materials by KME:

  •     Primary metals: copper, zinc, nickel, lead, tin
  •     Copper master alloys
  •     Scrap copper, zinc, brass and other alloys

A qualified international team, that is always up to date on the metal markets, is available to meet all the requests of our partners and metal suppliers.
