Since 1910, nickel and other metals have been refined, produced and exported from the production plant in Kristiansand. Nikkelverk's history fits in with the development of industrialisation in Norway at the beginning of the 1900s.

The process technology that was developed at Nikkelverk was anchored in the local environment. During the last 109 years, Nikkelverk has played a significant technical, economical, industrial and cultural role in the region. Our focus on the environment, efficient use of energy and on process technology has made Nikkelverk one of the most effective and technologically advanced refineries in the world. Such development is continued today with emphasis on sustainable value creation.
