Traditionally, refineries have been built near financial centers, which can be several steps removed from both the consumer and the source. That model worked well historically, but it no longer fits today's environment.
In contrast, International Precious Metal Refiners (IPMR) operations are located in one of the world's major offtake markets — the UAE. The advantage: your metals are refined and are available closer to those markets where they are in highest demand.
In fact, this area has been a crossroads of trade ever since precious commodities changed hands on the ancient “Silk Road.” But now, rather than trekking hills and mountain paths, you can fly your material into the Abu Dhabi International Airport, a bonded, commercial zone whose premises contain the Abu Dhabi Business and Logistics Park — the site where the IPMR refinery is situated. This location enables your materials to move from plane to plant without leaving the grounds of the airport.
Secure transport is also available from the Dubai International Airport, which is one hour away, and from the major sea cargo container ports nearby. Other options are also readily available due to the UAE 's highly developed transportation infrastructure.
