Adapting to the New Converter Reality: How PMR Can Help You Stay Ahead of the Curve
With global markets constantly in flux, catalytic converter recyclers are having to change the ways they do business. If you’ve kept up with the precious metal market, you might have noticed that the prices for platinum, palladium, and rhodium are changing quickly. With experts unable to predict any shifts in market prices, scrap metal and automotive recyclers are left wondering how to take advantage of trends before the next big development.
With this unprecedented new normal, converter recyclers are looking to stay on top of the market. With PMR, it’s never been easier to stay ahead of the curve. We’ll help you to get the best value for your converters and grow your business, no matter the challenges.

Purchasing decisions also need to be made quickly. That’s why PMR offers comprehensive buying tools like photo and video grading.

Video grading connects you to one of our converter experts, helping you price your converters confidently.

But once you’ve secured your material and forecasted your income, how can you make sure that you’ll get the converter returns you planned for?
How to Collect and Ship in the Same Market
Buying and selling in the same market is the only way to make sure you’re following trends and securing the returns you predicted.

This way, you can keep increasing your profits, even in today’s volatile market.
