The plant was founded in 1955 as a part of A/S Norsk Jernverk. The plant was producing pig iron and the owner was the Norwegian state. In 1989 the plant became a part of the private sector and since then the company has had 5 different private owners, and the production has changed from pig iron to ferroalloys. In 2018 we became a part of Ferroglobe. Currently the plant is producing Ferromanganese in two furnaces.
At site there is also a Sinter plant.
