History of EK-COMPANY AG (EKC.AG)
EK-COMPANY (EKC.AG) was founded in 2006 as "Europakontakt e.K." by the entrepreneur Vladimir Platunov (today CEO of EKC.AG).
We began by helping German companies find suppliers of certain raw materials, particularly in the CIS states. Large and medium-sized companies such as ThyssenKrupp and Evonik rely on our industry expertise and good relationships.
However, the economic crisis in 2009 forced us to reorient ourselves. Instead of continuing to broker business contacts, we positioned ourselves as an independent trading house and expanded our sources of supply beyond the CIS states. We specialised in the business fields of industry and energy, coal, coke & LNG/LPG, and industrial minerals such as chrome ore, bauxite, magnesite, graphite and quartz.
Due to extremely positive developments, we are now a globally active raw materials trader specialising in energy and industrial resources and also take over the entire logistics, financing and warehousing for our customers!
