With a successful track record of around 30 years in the global metals and mining industry, our integrated operations span the entire value chain from extraction and production, through to processing, energy, logistics and marketing.

Today ERG is the world’s largest high-carbon ferrochrome producer by chrome content and among the major cobalt producers. It is also a large producer of copper, the only producer of high-grade aluminium in the Republic of Kazakhstan and one of the largest suppliers of alumina and iron ore in Eurasia. Our materials help meet the needs of industries and societies across the world and fuel future economic growth. ERG’s customers are working in various sectors including metals industry, energy, transport, engineering, chemicals and construction, and we deliver partnership and reliability across the supply chain to reduce customer exposure to the volatility of commodity prices.

The Group has undergone a significant change and restructuring of the business following the transaction at the end of 2013 to buyout the assets of ‘ENRC’ (Eurasian Natural Resources Corporation Plc), formerly listed on the London and Kazakhstan stock exchanges). 

ERG is 40% owned by the Kazakhstan government. Dr Alexander Machkevitch is Chairman of the Board of Directors and Mr Benedikt Sobotka is Chief Executive Officer.
