India has historically been a mineral-rich country, and produces substantial volumes of minerals that are essential for ferrous and non-ferrous industries, like iron ore, chrome ore, copper, bauxite, and coal. Being one of the fastest growing economies in the world today, the industrial growth of India in the core sectors over the last decade was projected to soon outpace its supply of raw materials, leading to an internal supply deficit in terms of the essential raw materials, resulting in a lot of potential for imported commodities.   With this in mind, the journey of IPM COMMODITIES PRIVATE LIMITED, fondly referred to by its employees, customers and business associates as “IPMC”, began in April 2010 when the Company was incorporated with its registered office in Kolkata, India. The organisation was formed with the mission of providing complete solutions in terms of raw materials to the steel and associated industries in India. It started its operations with manganese ore sourced from Assmang Manganese in South Africa, and this commodity still continues to form the company’s core business. The portfolio was further increased to include sourcing of iron ore to cater to the Indian steel plants. In recents months we have added ferromanganese to our basket of supplies from the alloy plants of Assmang, located in South Africa & Malaysia.   Minmet S.A.M., a company registered in Monaco, today holds the major of IPMC. With recent structural changes at the top level, IPMC has now become part of the Assore Group, a giant by its own stature and one of the largest mining companies in South Africa. The primary focus of IPMC is to act as an exclusive Management Consultant for the Assore Group in the Indian market, whilst also providing a an on the ground presence for the Assore Group as it looks to grow its international marketing capabilities.   印度一直以来都是一个矿产丰富的国家,印度出产大量对黑色和有色金属工业至关重要的矿物,如铁矿石、铬矿石、铜、铝土矿和煤炭。作为当今世界增长最快的经济体之一,印度在过去十年中核心部门的工业生产增长速度预计将很快超过其原材料的供应量,导致基本原材料方面的国内供应不足,进口商品因此拥有大量潜力。   正是基于这种考量,IPM COMMODITIES PRIVATE LIMITED(的旅程开始于2010年4月,当时公司在印度加尔各答注册成立,其注册办事处设在印度。该组织成立的使命是为印度的钢铁和相关行业提供原材料方面的完整解决方案。业务开始于从南非的Assmang Manganese(采购锰矿,这目前仍然是公司的核心业务。随着投资组合进一步增加,包括采购铁矿石以满足印度钢铁厂的需求。近几个月来,我们也将在南非和马来西亚的Assmang合金厂的的锰铁加入了我们的供应列表中。   Minmet S.A.M.是一家在摩纳哥注册的公司,目前持有IPMC公司的主要股份。随着最近高层人事的变化,IPMC现在已经成为Assore集团的一部分,该集团是南非最大的矿业公司之一。IPMC的主要工作是作为Assore集团在印度市场的独家管理顾问,同时在Assore集团寻求发展其国际营销能力时,为其联络当地业务。

Transalloys is a well-recognized supplier of silicomanganese and medium carbnon ferromanganese globally, and the only silicomanganese producer in South Africa. The production plant is situated 14 km west of eMalahleni (Witbank) and approximately 90 km east of Pretoria, in the Mpumalanga Province. Manganese ore used in the production process comes from the Northern Cape Province of South Africa, which is known to contain 75% of the world’s identified manganese ore reserves.

The smelter complex  company was acquired in 2007,  and as a result of the concerted effort by the Transalloys’ management team and the employees, the productivity and output of the plant were increased by 50% without the addition of any additional smelting capacity. The plant has the capacity to produce approximately 180 000 tonnes of manganese ferroalloys per annum. The plant itself dates back to the mid-1960’s when the first two furnaces were built, with three more furnaces being added over the following three decades. Currently, there are 5 submerged arc furnaces, with capacity ranging between 22 and 48 MVA. Transalloys has completed the construction and commissioning of a UHT oxygen blown converter during Q3 of 2020. Typically, one of the SiMn furnaces  is periodically converted to HCFeMn production, which serves as feedstock to the converter for conversion to MCFeMn, which is then produced on a campaign basis. The standard grade silicomanganese contains a minimum of 16.5% of silicon, 65 to 67% of manganese and a maximum of 2% carbon. Medium carbon ferromanganese contains a minimum of 80 % manganese, less than 1.5 % carbon and less than 1.0 % silicon.   Transalloys 是一家在全球范围内获得认可的硅锰生产商,也是南非唯一的硅锰生产商。其工厂位于普马兰加省境内,在eMalahleni (Witbank)以西14公里、Pretoria以东90公里处。生产所用的锰矿主要来自北开普省,该区域内锰矿总量占全球已探明锰矿储量的75%。 公司成立于2007年。当时俄罗斯多元投资公司Renova集团收购了该工厂。在Renova公司战略领导,及Transalloys管理团队和员工的不懈努力下,该工厂在没有额外增加冶炼产能的情况下实现了生产率和产量双双50%的增长。目前该工厂可生产18万吨硅锰。2018年,Renova集团出售了其在Transalloys公司51%的股份给以色列和瑞士的投资者。 公司工厂的历史可以追溯到上世纪60年代中期,那时建造了两个初代的熔炉。一直发展到如今工厂拥有5个矿热炉,产量在 22 至 48 MVA 之间。Transalloys 已在 2020 年第三季度完成了超高温吹氧转炉的建设和调试。通常情况下,其中一台硅锰炉会定期转换去生产高碳锰铁,并作为转炉的原料,用于中碳锰铁的生产。后者的生产活动是按照批次进行的。 标准级硅锰硅含量最低为 16.5%,锰含量为 65% 至 67%,碳含量最高为 2%。中碳锰铁至少含有 80% 的锰、低于 1.5% 的碳和低于 1.0% 的硅。
