Our origins and future

Ferroglobe PLC was born on December 23, 2015 out of the combination of the Spanish company Grupo Ferroatlántica and the US company Globe Specialty Metals.

Grupo FerroAtlántica’s history dates back to 1992, with the acquisition by Juan-Miguel Villar Mir of the Ferroalloys Division of Carburos Metálicos. By the time of its incorporation with Globe Specialty Metals, Grupo Ferroatlántica was operating 14 factories in France, Spain, South Africa and Venezuela, producing silicon metal and its alloys, ferrosilicon and manganese alloys.

Globe Specialty Metals was founded in December 2004 as International Metal Enterprises, Inc., an investment company established specifically to acquire operating companies in the metal industry. It raised USD $200 million in equity capital from a diverse group of financial institutions and listed shares on the London Stock Exchange AIM Market in October 2005. In November 2006, it acquired Globe Metallurgical, Inc. (GMI), the largest silicon metal manufacturer in North America and largest specialty ferroalloy manufacturer in the United States. By the time of its incorporation with Grupo Ferratlántica, Globe operated 8 plants in North America, Argentina, and China..
