The Sevojno Copper Mill was founded in 1950 by the decision of the General Directorate of the Government of the Federal People’s Republic of Yugoslavia. Production at the Sevojno Copper Mill began in 1952.

From 1950 until privatization, the Sevojno Copper Mill was organized as follows: the Socially Owned Enterprise (SOUR) Copper and Aluminum Mill “Slobodan Penezić Krcun” Sevojno, the Sevojno Copper Mill with a Public Enterprise status, and the Joint Stock Company (DP) Sevojno Copper Mill. Today, the Sevojno Copper Mill is a joint-stock company under the law.

The Sevojno Copper Mill is the largest copper and copper alloy processor in the former Yugoslavia, placing it among the most well-known and giant factories in Europe and the world. The company’s headquarters and production facilities are located in Sevojno.

The core activity of the Sevojno Copper Mill involves the processing of copper and copper alloy through rolling, pressing, and drawing into standard semi-finished products, including sheets, strips, foils, waist, rondels, pipes, bars, rods, profiles, and wires. Most of the products are exported to foreign markets (80%), making the Sevojno Copper Mill one of the largest exporters in Serbia, with the main exports going to Western Europe and Central and Eastern Europe.

One-third of the Sevojno Copper Mill’s production consists of products used in the defense industry, which is why, in 2018, the Serbian government classified the factory as a company of strategic importance for the country.

The products of the Sevojno Copper Mill find applications in machinery manufacturing, the electrical industry, shipbuilding, petrochemicals, energy, automotive and process industries, construction, and architecture.

The designed capacity of the Sevojno Copper Mill is approximately 50,000 tons per year. The current capacity ranges from 35,000 to 45,000 tons annually, depending primarily on the product range.

In the Sevojno Copper Mill’s facilities, various types of pure copper deoxidized with phosphorus and a wide range of copper alloys with zinc are cast and processed through plastic deformation in both cold and hot states, including two-components and three-components alloys (lead brass, special alloys with tin, aluminum, and nickel).

The advantages of the Sevojno Copper Mill over its competitors primarily lie in its production flexibility, characterized by the ability to produce both large quantities and small batch orders, as well as the ability to procure products related to both the Rolling Plant and the Extrusion Plant in one place.

Investing in new equipment, adopting new technologies, developing new products, further improving environmental sustainability, and investing in training and personnel development are strategic priorities and some of the aspects of the business policy for the future of the Sevojno Copper Mill.

Currently, the Sevojno Copper Mill employs approximately 1,100 people.
