Company Profile:
To become the largest and best distributor/contact of Tantalum and Niobium for the global market.

To provide a stable, ethical and reliable source of Tantalum for all customers in a transparent operation.

While many have not heard of these metals, they are essential for the functioning of our modern economies. Tantalum is critical for the production of microelectronic capacitors that are necessary for the production of cell phones, laptops, digital cameras, airbags, and other electronic devices. It is also used for specialty applications in the aerospace, medical, and nuclear power industries. Niobium, on the other hand, is used as an alloy in steel and super alloys. It is used, for example, in the manufacture of bridges, buildings, and oil and gas pipelines.

Demand for tantalum has been increasing since the 1990s as more microelectronic devices are adopted and global economies expand. Tantalum supply on the other hand is under stress. Within the past six months the three largest suppliers: Talison from Australia, Noventa from Mozambique, and the United States Defence Logistics Agency have either shut down or exhausted their supplies. Over 50% of the worlds tantalum supply, and almost all of the stable ethical supply, has been removed.

Since most of the world's supply has been shut out, the majority of tantalum is now coming from the Democratic Republic of Congo where it is mined as Coltan produced in unethical and inhumane ways and the profits of which fund the ongoing wars that have plagued the country for years. Our supply is from Bolivia, Colombia and Brazil.

We are working towards becoming a stable, ethical, and reliable source of tantalum distributor for the world market.
