Having started out in 1969 as a copper research specialist, CRU branched out in the mid-1980s and is now a global leader in mining, metal and fertilizer commodity research and analysis.

The growth of the business has happened not only in commodity specialisms, but also in geographic locations. CRU was initially based solely in London, but quickly opened offices in Australia, then China, America, South America, India, and Asia in very recent years, acquiring depth of expertise in local market knowledge with every new hub. CRU now employs over 280 people worldwide.

Today CRU is recognised for its work across a broad range of commodities, including steel, aluminium, base metals, ferroalloys and fertilizers. The business uses first-hand data and information to deliver analysis and forecasts, market-leading price assessments, costs services, global industry events.

David Trafford, CEO, CRU, said, “The commodity industry is constantly shifting and I’m confident the reason CRU has successfully navigated 50 years of change is due to the quality of its work, the professionalism of its teams and loyalty of its customers.”
