Outokumpu’s history began in 1910 with the discovery of copper in Kuusjärvi, Finland – on a hill called Outokumpu, which literally means “strange hill”. Over the years, we have mined and refined various metals in Finland and abroad, before focusing solely on stainless steel in the 2000s. Outokumpu boasts the widest product portfolio in the market, state-of-the-art and modern mills, our own unique source of chrome and 100 years of expertise in metals, technology and mining.
