First of all, it is clear that the Eramet Group's activities and profitability depend to a large extent on commodity market trends, particularly the price of the metals it mines.
The Eramet Group is currently one of the leaders in its sector of activity, thanks in particular to the acquisition of other companies and the creation of a number of subsidiaries. Here are the details. First of all, in 1985, the Group created the subsidiary Le Nickel SLN. The same year, the subsidiary COMILOG joined the group. Then, in 1992, the Eramet Group created its subsidiary Erasteel. Finally, in 1999, the subsidiary Aubert et Duval was created.
