European Raw Material Services

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.

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.

Shipments of solid fuels can be combined with industrial/ refractory minerals, thus optimising logistics and reducing costs. Materials mainly arrive in the ARA ports (Amsterdam – Rotterdam – Antwerp) and are handled and distributed in accordance with customer requirements.

HRMS currently makes use of storage facilities at Immingham (UK), Rotterdam and Amsterdam (Netherlands), Ghent (Belgium) and Duisburg and Hamburg (Germany) as well as consignment storage within clients’ sites.
