From its humble origins in Hamburg Germany through its first incorporation and opening of Philpp Brothers London in 1909, Phibro (as it became known) expanded rapidly. The business established itself as the prototypical London commodities trading house and developed a flexible and entrepreneurial business model that evolved to capitalize on the opportunities that existed at the time.   The firm was an early pioneer in the development of liquidity and price transparency of the global commodities markets. Recognized as such, in 1942, the US government retained Phibro to assist it in the acquisition and development of a strategic metals reserve. In the early years the majority of the Firms activity involved the trading marketing and processing of metal ores and concentrates.    Phibro also expanded aggressively into other products including oil, refined products, chemicals and fertilizer. The Firm subsequently developed a related asset strategy designed to strengthen its increasingly important role as the worlds largest Commodities trading company. In 1988 Phibro became the largest independent oil refiner in the US.  In 1981, Phibro aquired Salmon Brothers and in 1998 the Firm became a subsidiary of Citigroup.  In January 2016 Phibro was acquired by Energy Arbitrage Partners (EAP).  Today, Phibro is an independent firm headed by Simon Greenshields (CEO).
