The company was founded with the funding of the Rothschild family (although they were careful to avoid being listed as founders of the company) in 1880. With discretion, the family took full control of the company in 1890.[3]

The company produces non-ferrous metals and derivatives, nickel alloys and superalloys, and high-performance special steels.

Through its subsidiary Société Le Nickel (SLN),[4] the company has its historical roots in nickel mining, and for over 100 years has maintained a large mining operation in the French overseas territory of New Caledonia. It is also a major producer of manganese from mines in Gabon.

Eramet's chairman and CEO is Christel Bories[5] and its headquarters is in Paris.



Eramet is organised into three activities:

  • ERAMET Manganese (48% of the group's turnover):[6] Eramet's subsidiary Comilog extracts manganese in the Moanda mine in Gabon and then transforms it in its metallurgical and chemical factories located in China, in Europe and in the United States.[7]
  • ERAMET Alloys (32% of the group's turnover):[6] Eramet elaborates special steels and superalloys as well as wrought pieces for the aeronautic and energy sectors.[8]
  • ERAMET Nickel (20% of the group's turnover):[6] Eramet's subsidiary, Le Nickel-SLN extracts nickel in five mines in New Caledonia, mainly to produce stainless steel.[9]
