About Us

Pioneering the concept of scientific gold refining in India

The repealing of the Gold Control Act in 1993, set the stage for CGR Metalloys to usher in world-class gold metallurgical products and services, redefine the unorganised precious metal refining sector, & benchmark scientific practices to meet international standards of quality.

Embarking on our journey as Chemmanur Gold Refinery in 1994, we set up India’s first state-of-the-art Scientific gold refinery manufacturing 999 bullion, ensuring purity of refined gold across the entire gold supply chain.

 

With growing production volumes and multifarious activities over the years, the company was rebranded as CGR Metalloys in 2016, to reflect the diverse portfolio of services and products we offer. Today, CGR Metalloys is one of India’s leading names in the field of precious metallurgy.

Integrity, transparency and excellency at all touchpoints, have been the cornerstones of our service delivery to clients. Our longstanding reputation as India’s pioneering and most trusted precious metal refiner has earned CGR Metalloys numerous awards and accolades in the industry.
