From the earliest days of the Horne Smelter nearly 100 years ago, a spirit of innovation has always driven our employees to meet the company’s challenges. To this day, the smelter’s teams build on this legacy of innovation, leadership, and hard work to overcome the challenges they encounter.

Over time, with the support of our workers and their valuable skills and expertise, our processes have been modernized and improved and we are proud to contribute to a circular economy by promoting the integration of recycled metals.

Several innovations have emerged at Horne Smelter, making us a leader in copper processing.
