Elkem ASA supplies various metals and materials, such as aluminum, energy, silicon metal, ferrosilicon, microsilica, and carbon to the construction, transportation, engineering, packaging, aluminum, chemical, and electronic industries. The company operates in six groups: Sapa; Ferrosilicon; Silicon Metal; Energy; Aluminum; and Materials, Carbon, and Calcium Carbide.
The Sapa group develops, produces, and markets processed aluminum profiles, profile based components, and building systems and strips for aluminum heat exchangers. Its products are primarily used in the construction, transportation, and manufacturing industries, as well as in the automotive industry.
The Ferrosilicon group provides special alloys for foundry customers in the automotive industry, cast-iron pipe manufacturers, and others engaged in mechanical engineering, as well as offers ferrosilicon for the steel industry to produce carbon and stainless steel. The Silicon Metal group offers its products for the chemical industry to produce silicones; for the electronics industry as basis for the manufacturing of semiconductors; and for the aluminum industry as alloying metal.
The Energy group produces hydroelectric power at its three power plants. The Aluminum group provides rolling ingots for the packaging and transportation industries; extrusion billets for the constructions and transportation industries; and foundry billets for the automotive industry.
The Materials, Carbon, and Calcium Carbide group supplies microsilica, which is used as an additive to concrete, structural, and refractory materials, and for drilling in the petroleum industry, as well as for tunnel sealing. This group also produces electrically calcinated anthracite, and Soderberg electrode paste; and calcium carbide for the industrial gases, iron, and steel industries.
The company was founded in 1904 and is headquartered in Oslo, Norway.
