About us

tradingpartners exist to help meet the demand for industrial materials in a rapidly changing world. Trading is what drives our business. In fact, trading provides the impetus for almost all our activities.

An experienced, independent and privately owned industrial trading company, we find, trade, store and transport materials and resources from where supply is abundant to where demand is great.

We forge connections; we trade physical commodities; we help make things happen and markets work. We do things differently, and the difference lies less in what we do than in how we do it.

This solid platform allows us to build long-lasting partnership with our customers, who look to and rely upon tradingpartners for agile thinking, creative solutions- and an unwavering commitment to reliability.

Steel & metal mines


Steel markets are volatile. They change with the political climate, with shifts in supply and demand, and with currency fluctuations. They change with the shipments, with elections, with technological breakthroughs and with economic breakdowns. We anticipate and we act fast.

Today tradingpartners operates a trans-European network and is present in all the major commercial centres. From southern Portugal to eastern Poland we transport by rail, by water and by road.

We trade flat- and round steel in carbon, alloy and stainless-steel qualities. Our main strengths are in the field of long special engineering steel products.

Our trading expertise in the steel, metals and mining sector stretches back almost 40 years. We provide buying and sales facilities, logistics from FOB to the final destination. These include financing, export- and import services as well as customs clearance. We provide special steel solutions.

We handle a large range of grades and products, e.g. iron ore from 52% to 65% Fe (fines, lumps, SF, concentrates) and seek to build long-term partnerships with miners and manufacturers.



The global reach of tradingpartners means we have a presence and local expertise wherever in the world chemicals is sourced, stored, transported, traded or needed. The size and diversity of our complementary worldwide interests means we truly understand the markets in which we operate and understand the relationships between them.

We trade in different chemical products, in quantities both large and small.


tradingpartners was approached by a small producer. They had discovered a fascinating technology capable of producing high grade zinc oxide up to 99,99 %, but lacked the resources and global trading knowledge to realise the best return for their production.

tradingpartners worked with their equity owners in the testing and subsequent analysis of results at an independent laboratory, generating better netbacks for the producer while managing the on-going marketing of the grade.
