Hauser & Miller Refiners

leave a comment »

Here’s an American company that has made the 100 year club.  Hauser & Miller located in St. Louis, MO, has been refining precious metals since 1909.  “Fair, competitive, and fast returns have marked our philosophy for over 100 years. Our reputation in the industry is unrivaled.”  They work with precious metals and are masters at fabricating many different metals.  These are the places that you should be taking your scrap gold or silver to, not the “We Buy Gold” guy on the corner!
