Our history

Precious Groups Refining was created on February 1, 2017 in Rimouski.

With its recent creation, PGR has been able to invest in state-of-the-art equipment to be at the forefront of the precious metals refining sector.

In its early days, the company began to recapture catalytic converters in local markets by creating partnerships with regional suppliers. Gradually, PGR has developed international agreements with suppliers in Latin America, Europe and Asia.

Following the success of the first years of operation and more and more partnership agreements, the company continued its expansion by joining the Innova-Center in Témiscouata-sur-le-Lac in April 2021.

In October 2021, the Minister for the Economy, Lucie Lecours, announced a loan of $ 1.02 million granted to the entreprise, which allows Precious Groups Refining to continue to develop its innovative processes and support the economy of region.

Our company wishes to consolidate its position as a North American leader in the extraction of precious metals, by contributing to the economic development of the region and the development of our partners.
