Tavid was established as a private limited company in April 1991 by Mr Alar Tamming in Tallinn, Estonia. It started with video rentals in Tallinn Video Center, hence how the company got its name, Tavid. Mr Tamming’s dedication to searching for ways to increase revenue led to the first foreign exchange transaction taking place in October 1992.
Tavex expands to Finland
The first foreign subsidiary of Tavid AS was founded in Finland in 1996. It was called Tavex OY. The company’s overseas expansion was fuelled by the growing Estonian workforce in Finland. They needed a quick and secure way to send money back home. So, an express money remittance service between Finland and Estonia was set up. This was unique at the time.
Tavex expands to Latvia
The company continued its expansion in 2002. Entering the Latvian market under the name Tavex SIA. Although the local business culture was very different there – doing business in Estonia was much simpler and more transparent at the time – hard work brought success. Tavex SIA currently has six offices in Riga.
Start of gold
Mr Tamming initially acquired a small amount of gold to maintain the value of his assets. He found the process to be drawn out and frustrating. Being a man that’s passionate about customer service, he knew he could provide a better buying experience for others.
He also knew he wasn’t the only person interested in protecting their assets against inflation. So, in 2004, Tavex started offering everyone the best way to purcase physical gold.
One ounce cost around £220 at the time.
Tavex goes to Sweden
We opened our second Scandanavian subsidiary in Sweden in 2005. Tavex AB started offering currency exchange services and selling gold. The Swedish market loved our excellent service, customer-friendly pricing, commitment and trustworthiness. As a result of this, Tavex is now a well known and established bullion dealer in Sweden, currently operating in 4 locations.
Tavex during the economic crisis
The uncertain economic situation and plunging stock markets saw many people seek refuge in gold. This resulted in a sudden surge in demand. Our robust supply chain and strong relationship with refineries meant we still met our customer’s needs. Despite the turbulence in the market, Tavex delivered 2,159kg of gold in 2008. This was a record at the time.
Tavex expands to Bulgaria
Tavex EOOD was founded in 2009 in Bulgaria. Nordic business ethics and core principles helped propel Tavex EOOD to huge success. Helping Tavex contribute to Bulgaria’s rapidly evolving business environment. Tavex now operates a total of seven offices in Sofia, Varna, Burgas and Plovdiv.
Tavex continued its mission in the Scandinavian market in 2011. Opening an office in Denmark, quickly followed by an office in Norway. As a result, Tavex now operate in all Scandinavian countries. Where we’re a household name among bullion purchasers.
Tavex and Poland
Tavex Group continued its expansion in Eastern Europe when Tavex Sp. z o.o. was established in Poland. The first office opened in Warsaw in 2015, followed by the second office in 2020. The third office opened in Katowice in 2020 and the fourth in Gdynia in 2021. Tavex is currently the largest bullion reseller in Poland.
A subsidiary company, TavexWise AS was founded in 2015. The aim was to provide payment services and money transfers under the TavexWise brand.
Year of Change
The pandemic has challenged everyone. During the turbulent times, people sought a safe haven. This created an unprecedented demand for gold and silver at a time when transport and logistics operations halted.
Tavex Group left no stone unturned in continuing our high standards of service. Thanks to the resilience of our team, the hard work of our partners and constant innovation, we succeeded. Delivering over 200,000oz of gold to our customers.
