CPM is a registered Precious Metal Refinery, specialising in the recycling of all precious metals. Utilising modern techniques for maximum
recovery and returns, we refine all jewellers' waste, including sweeps, filings, polishings, old jewellery solids and (the little-known) sludge.
We also recover silver from photographic material, generating 999 silver which is alloyed and beneficiated into ready-to-use products for jewellers.
We started small, as a silver refining company operated solely by Sharon Eades. Her approach has always been hands-on, with an emphasis on
listening closely to her customers. Over the years, this has shifted our focus to assisting manufacturing jewellers at every stage of the creative
process, through an extensive range of quality goods and reliable services.
It's our goal to stock the largest range of high quality, fair value and up-to-date necessities for jewellers, including tools, cleaners, components, castings, findings and semi-finished products. We also offer CAD design,wax model and casting services and we have in-house assay facilities.
As one of only a few refineries in South Africa equipped to recover Platinum Group Metals from waste material, all Gold, Platinum and Palladium refined at our facilities has a purity of 99.99%.
CPM corporate culture embraces diversity, with a core internal focus on training our 70+ team members. We believe it's vital to provide growth opportunities both within our company and the industry as a whole. Our committed Management team, some of whom have been with us for 20 years, collectively has over 200 years of experience in the industry and lead the search for new ways to provide exceptional service to our customers.
