PMR is born in Laval, Quebec in 1996, buying and selling by the piece. It then transitions to purchaser and decanner after buying its first shear to cut converters in 1998.
In 2002 PMR buys its first XRF machine and moves to a larger facility in Laval with 15 employees in the following year. PMR then expands and relocates in 2007 to an even larger facility in Boisbriand, Quebec and opens a second location in 2010 in Brampton, Ontario.
PMR purchases its first ICP machine in 2011 and in the following year deploys new technology, fully engineered in-house, to pay suppliers on assay results with the lowest minimum requirement in industry (100 converters). Two years later in 2014 PMR opens its third facility in Delray Beach, Florida and moves from its Brampton location to a larger facility in Mississauga, Ontario. In 2015, PMR deploys PMR ONE, a system used to manage and automate invoicing and historical data, track lots and arrange transport.
PMR deploys the SSP in 2016, a Supplier Services Platform with purchasing, evaluation and processing tools. The most popular tool being photo-grading. Two years later, PMR deploys the inventory box program, a new feature and tool used for securing and valuing inventory in a lot format. In the same year, PMR opens its fourth facility for foil processing, including novel machinery. In 2019, PMR moves to an even larger facility in Mississauga, increasing location size for the second time in Ontario. PMR now employs more than 100 individuals. In 2020, PMR deploys a new Trim Grading tool and expands Boisbriand Headquarters by 27,000 square feet.
Moving forward PMR remains committed to innovation and continues companywide efforts toward imminent development projects.
