The fineness of precious metals is determined by assay offices and assayers certified by the Swiss Central Office for Precious Metals Control. Only they can guarantee the authenticity, purity and origin of precious metal bars with their signature. For this purpose, each cast or minted product must bear the assay mark of the license holder.
ARGOR-HERAEUS SA expressly disapproves of Russia’s aggression against Ukraine in violation of international law, and has therefore decided not to contribute in any way to the financing of Russia.
Saturday October 15, as part of the graduation ceremony for SUPSI’s Master of Science in Engineering program, Laura Bauce and Riccardo Biella were presented ex-aequo with the Argor-Heraeus prize for the best diploma work.
With the agreement signed in the past few days, Argor-Heraeus, one of the global leaders in precious metal processing, has become the 100% owner of Erbas, a historic, Ticino-based company active in the watchmaking and jewellery sector. The joint decision further expands the range of services offered by Argor-Heraeus. It consolidates the company’s role as a reference point for the global luxury watch and jewellery sector.
