General

The only lead smelter in Romania

Sometra Company was founded in 1939 and is the largest zinc and lead metallurgy in Romania.
In November 1998, Mytilineos Holdings SA acquired 57% of the company Sometra Copsa Mica, which reached 88% in the first quarter of 2000 through a share capital increase. The company embarked on its business activities in 1939, yet the most important changes came after 1965 when it obtained full metallurgic equipment. In 1988, it produced in total 35,000 tons of metals annually.

Today, following investments made in the past years, exceeding $30 million, production is expected to stand at 80,000 tons, employing in parallel 1,200 employees. It should be noted that the investment cycle was completed in 2006 for both productivity improvement and production increase by 20-25%, and improvement of environmental operation terms according to European Union directives.
