Patrick Magilligan Brings Sales and Trading Experience to Key Metal Refining LLC

Published on October 25, 2017

Platinum Group Metals sales and trading pro Patrick Magilligan has joined scrap catalytic converter buyer Key Metal Refining LLC.

PGM sales veteran Pat Magilligan was recently hired by New Jersey based Key Metal Refining (KMR) as Director of PGM Marketing. Magilligan has over three decades of experience in commodities trading, sales, and research, working with the likes of Merrill Lynch, Prudential Securities, and A-1 Specialized Services & Supplies Inc.

KMR purchases spent catalytic converters and extracts platinum group metals from them.  The extracted catalyst material is then smelted, refined and sold to other market participants as fungible metals, completing the loop on the recycling process.

Company President John D. Bruno believes Magilligan’s extensive background in PGM sales will increase the return on KMR’s metals stating “In this competitive environment you have to be efficient in every aspect of the business, including metal sales.”

“Pat’s experience helps us to do that.  Metal sales is an important part of the business.  Improving efficiency in metal trading helps to enhance returns“ Bruno expounded.

According to Bruno “Better returns on our metals will help us to continue to grow while achieving the highest levels of customer service.”
