Zurich/Geneva 25th June 2015 – Degussa Goldhandel AG Switzerland has opened a branch in Geneva, which now means it is represented in the two biggest cities in Switzerland, alongside the headquarters in Zurich. From a location near the promenade on the banks of Lake Geneva, Degussa can now offer customers the whole range of Degussa products and services, from investment products, such as gold bars and coins, to commemorative thalers and gold gifts. We also have deposit boxes in seven different sizes in a state of the art secure facility for safe storage of precious metals and other valuables, regardless of whether they were bought from Degussa or not.
Andreas Hablützel, Managing Director of Degussa Goldhandel AG: “The city of Geneva is the perfect location for our second branch as the biggest precious metal dealers in Switzerland, thanks to its importance as a financial centre, its international feel and its central geographic location. We feel there is high potential demand in the precious metal area, and also for our gold gift products such as valuable jewellery, gold and silver writing instruments, and also our exclusive watch collection.”
“Opening the new Geneva branch is also in keeping with the international expansion strategy of our parent company, the Degussa Goldhandel Group.” Hablützel continues. The group of companies is now market leader in Europe, with offices in Switzerland, London and Madrid. “On top of that, we are also looking increasingly at opening up global markets, such as Asia and South America. So, we’re opening a Degussa branch in Singapore this summer”, announces Hablützel .
Degussa offers their whole range of physical precious metals in Geneva. Gold, silver, platinum, palladium and rhodium bars and coins are available in various weights. In the store, a specially designed sales room is devoted to the wide range of gold gifts, where the varied range of products is presented in a clear manner. Customers also have the opportunity to purchase special patterned bars and limited edition medallions, as well as special collections and numismatic coins. In addition, customers can have their old gold, such as items of jewellery which they don’t wear any more, valued by the Degussa experts, and sold on-site if they wish.
The branch is located at Quai du Mont-Blanc 5. It is open Monday to Friday from 09:00 to 17:00 or you can call on +41 (0)22 908 14 00.
