The team was taken under the leadership of the local FErro-NIckel mining company "Feni Industries AD" in 2005, while the smelter was under the control of Beny Steinmetz.
Since 2008, KK Feni has organized the international basketball tournament “Dimitar Gjorgjiev", in Kavadarci.
In 2019, due to the difficulties of Steinmetz and because of the uncertain economic climate for the smelter's output, the company faced court-ordered administration. The result of this process was the sale of the smelter to an organization called Euronickel, who also took on the sponsorship of the basketball team.
Jasmin Arena (Macedonian: " Јасмин") is a multi-purpose indoor sports arena located in Kavadarci, North Macedonia and seats 2,500 spectators.
