Specialist agency services

APM is headquartered in the UK and has offices in Hong Kong and Houston, Texas. The company was formed in 2004 by Mr. John Allen, who has over 40 years of experience in the industrial minerals business. APM came about as a response to the growing demand for an enterprising, energetic company to bring mining companies and end users together.

APM’s core business is barite of which we source 1 million metric tons per year from China, India, Mexico and Morocco primarily for use in the US oil and gas industry.

The focus is firmly upon business development, innovation and providing support for each new emerging international opportunity. We believe in working with our suppliers and customers on an open, honest and transparent basis which helps to build mutual trust and long term relationships.
