Targray Group is a diversified multinational commodity and specialty materials company that markets a broad range of products and solutions for the renewable energy sector. Established in 1989 in Montreal, Canada, our organization is a leading international provider of battery materials, solar and energy storage solutions, and biodiesel fuel.
Drawing on 3 decades of experience supporting rapidly growing industries, our team strives to play an integral part in building the customer value chain, combining Targray Group’s global resources with market-leading expertise to create innovative business solutions for markets around the world.
In the mid 1980s, CD technology was gaining momentum with consumers, and manufacturers were struggling to meet demand for their product. Seeing the sector’s vast growth potential, Engineer Thomas Richardson started a home business providing materials for compact disc production. Before long, operations had grown beyond the confines of Richardson’s home office, prompting him to launch the Targray brand.
Offering everything from mastering and replication materials to printing and packaging solutions, Targray quickly became a household name in the CD industry, forging successful partnerships with Philips, Entegris and Dow Plastics en route to becoming a hundred million dollar business.
In 2005, Targray launched its Solar Division to supply raw materials and consumables to the burgeoning solar photovoltaics sector. Building on the customer-focused approach that helped Targray become a compact disc industry leader, the Solar Division worked collaboratively with partners to create new efficiencies and lower the cost-per-watt their solar solutions can deliver to end users.
Targray’s solar business was quick to find success, generating over 25 million CAD in sales in its first year alone. It has since gone on to generate over 1.2 billion CAD in sales, establishing itself as one of the world’s largest solar material distributors outside of mainland China.
The Battery Division was established in 2010 to support the material requirements of lithium-ion cell manufacturers, battery project developers and national laboratories. Today, it markets the broadest portfolio of specialty materials in the battery sector, serving the needs of over 300 customers around the world.
Leveraging Targray Group’s international footprint and industry expertise, the Battery Division works jointly with partners on enhancing product features, acquiring new customers, lowering lead times, freeing up inventory dollars, improving cash flow and managing supply risk.
Established in 2012, the Biofuels Division has quickly grown to become a North American leader in the sourcing, transporting, storage, trading and supply of bio-based fuels.
Supported by an extensive network of company-managed rail cars and fuel terminals, Targray creates innovative, value-driven biodiesel solution for fuel retailers, diesel distributors, commodity traders and transportation companies throughout the U.S. and Europe.
