Who we are
Established in 1930 and focused on copper production, Kazakhmys PLC is among the world's leading natural resources groups. We are based primarily in Kazakhstan, Central Asia, listed in London, Kazakhstan and Hong Kong.
Our operations are fully integrated. This not only gives us complete control of every stage of the copper production process. It ensures we are one of the world's lowest-cost copper producers with the flexibility to serve many different customers. Our location in Kazakhstan also means we are ideally positioned to meet the demands of the world's largest markets.
Delivering growth and value
We plan to increase our production by more than 50% in the next 3 years. At every step, we aim to deliver value, not volume. We are achieving this through an optimisation programme that maximises productivity and efficiency across our operations.
Respecting our people and communities
Kazakhmys is one of Kazakhstan's largest companies and contributors to the country's society. With this economic strength comes a corporate responsibility to protect and respect our employees and their families. It is all part of our commitment to those that matter most: our people and the communities in which we operate.
Focused on Copper
The demand for copper is growing. Copper is one of the key metals of modern economic development, found in nearly every new apartment or office block, vehicle and electrical appliance. It is one of the best heat and electricity conductors, is resistant to corrosion and is present in various alloys. Supply remains constrained, and the outlook for copper is positive.
Understanding our business
Kazakhmys is the largest copper producer in Kazakhstan and one of the leading global copper producers. We have a market capitalisation of $6,6 billion as at 31 December 2012. Kazakhmys listed in London in October 2005 and our shares can be traded in London, Hong Kong and Almaty. We have a 26% holding in ENRC, another London listed mining company. The holding has a market value of $1,546 million as at 31 December 2012 and contributed $548 million to Group EBITDA.
