How We Create Value

What will Lykos do for your business?

Businesses that need metal inputs in smaller lot sizes currently face three major problems

  • UNORGANISED OUTLETS
  • ERRATIC SUPPLY
  • OPAQUE PRICING

This is a complicated market, and that means buyers suffer. Businesses need to manage their working capital, yet uncertainty in the procurement of metals means the typical business needs to stockpile inventory to ensure continuing production.

  • One Stop Buying
  • Guaranteed delivery for all orders ex warehouse
  • Lot sizes ranging from 1 to 24 tons
  • Transparent and dynamic pricing: All metal prices are index-linked
