With a successful track record of more than 25 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 principal copper and cobalt suppliers. It is also one of the largest suppliers of alumina and iron ore in Eurasia and the only producer of high-grade aluminium in the Republic of Kazakhstan. 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) to ‘ERG’. In 2014, a new management team was appointed. The reinforced corporate governance and compliance policies are supported by an amended shareholder structure and a new board of directors.

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

Strong relationships with existing partners and the stake of the Kazakhstan government in the Eurasian Resources Group ensure continued support for the Group’s business plans, which is especially important against the backdrop of the macro-economic uncertainties in the industry and the prolonged period of volatility in commodity prices.

The Group is developing large-scale investment projects in conjunction with the Chinese Government and its policy banks as part of 'One Belt, One Road" Initiative. These projects are aimed at fuelling the industrialisation and infrastructural growth in Central Asia and Africa and at improving the livelihood of thousands of local citizen.
