In 1852 Martin de Pury & Cie founded the "Preliminary Rolling Factory" at Le Locle, which specialized in the melting of gold and the manufacture of watch cases, establishing the foundations of the future Metalor industrial group.
Developing its production activities first at a site in Neuchâtel, and then in other countries throughout the world, Metalor was owned by Société de Banque Suisse until 1998, when its majority ownership was taken over by a group of industrial investors.
Silver has, for thousands of years, been used for ornaments and utensils, for trade, and as the basis for many monetary systems. Its value as a precious metal was long considered second only to gold.
Historically more volatile than gold, the silver price often tracks the gold price over time owing to similar demand dynamics for its store of value. The ratio between the two metals, at times during history fixed by the Romans, America and France, is now subject to market forces and its movement is studied and analysed by many traders and investors.
