Over its 110-year history of innovation and continuous growth, Elkem has contributed to many pioneering advances within the metallurgical industries that have led to advancement and progress for you as our client, our stakeholders and society at large.
At our centennial in 2004, we commissioned Professor Knut Sogner to write the history of Elkem, resulting in the comprehensive and intriguing book «Skaperkraft» (Creative Power). The book describes a century of initiative determination and success, as well as disappointment and even despair. In summary, this is the story of a company with staying power and long-term commitment to technological development.
Elkem Foundry Products is an integral part of this great history and has developed from small beginnings to its current position as world leader in foundry technology. Through a combination of innovation, ingenuity and a determination to stay at the forefront of technological development, our success and that of our customers continues its positive development.
