Mtlexs - The Start

Mtlexs founded in the year 2013 by Chartered Accountant Ms. Saloni V Kothari hailing form a family having 5 decades of experience in Non ferrous industry. The portal provides Research + Insights related to Non Ferrous Industry. In short span of 3 years, Mtlexs Team comprising of Experienced Non Ferrous Metal Industry professionals have worked towards growth & development of Mtlexs with commitment to Innovation.

Mtlexs.com is a fair & impartial marketplace providing members, worldwide news, latest metal prices, local tenders, import export data & projects data, technical data, technical tools, market data and research under single online platform; thus helping them increase business efficiency as well as reduce costs. The information is disseminated to the audience via multiple channels, primarily including the web portal, email newsletters, text messages, WhatsApp messages, social media, participation in events, conferences & trade fairs, and offline print media.

Our vision is to use the power of Internet and transform the Non Ferrous Metal ecosystem through the integrated 3C approach of content, Collaboration and e-Commerce.

Our mission statement is to solve business pain points of Technology, Marketing and Finance and help enable a Future Ready status for all players in the NFM Ecosystem.

We hinge our focus on 3 pillars: Content, Collaboration and Commerce.
To help actualize the vision, we realised that we needed to differentiate ourselves by adding completeness and depth in our vision.
We set out on a progressive journey, starting with our first pillar, Content. After solidifying Content, we progressed on to our pillar of Collaboration and now we are cementing our final pillar of Commerce, achieving higher completeness and more depth as we progress from Content to Collaboration and finally to Commerce.

Content: Having been an intrinsic part of the NFM industry for over 30 years, we wanted to share our knowledge with fellow members in the NFM Ecosystem. We wanted our differentiator to be insights not just content.

Collaboration: We realized early on that from mere matchmaking of buyers and sellers, we needed to progress to 360 degree collaboration with the entire NFM ecosystem. In true spirit of collaboration, we formed alliances with over 25 National and International NFM Associations.We have collaborated with different associations of the Non-Ferrous metal market like Bombay Metal Exchange, Aluminium Association of India, India Lead and Zinc Development Association, and many international organizations such as Metal Bulletin, CRU, Messe Dusseldorf, Reed Expo and such to enable members to take advantage of the services offered by Mtlexs.

Commerce: After solidifying our pillars of content and collaboration, the logical next step was commerce. We were already addressing information pain points by giving information about tenders, auctions, prices, etc. But we realized there was a strong need to also address business pain points of Technology, Marketing and Finance..

We have the first mover advantage in this sector and already have a verified database of more than 36000+ registered members. Our portal is technologically advanced and easy to use, which is also scalable to incorporate any new developments.
