Quality, dependability and progress – for 4 generations
Under the sign of the elephant Mr. Richard Anton founded a trading company in 1904 specializing in the importation of natural graphites from Ceylon and Madagascar. Continual expansion and development in the areas of products and quality turned Richard Anton KG into one of the world’s leading suppliers of graphites, specialty cokes and recarburizers. In 1972 we started to import pig iron in ingots. But that was not enough: additional business sectors were added when we founded Aluwerk Hettstedt GmbH, then took over and integrated RMG Metallfachhandel GmbH. Thus the Richard Anton group of companies – which continues to be family-owned – is in a position to supply high-quality raw materials in the areas of graphites, recarburizers and pig iron as well as aluminium billets, bars, pipes and plates – all from one source and ISO certified!
