Through AlbChrome, the Albanian ferro-chrome is currently exported to 52 different countries worldwide. Albchrome's main market remains Europe, where the most developed industrial countries have the biggest share in importing this product from our country.
What is even more important is that Albanian chrome is well-ranked in the group of countries with the highest quality in the world for this mineral. Along with Albania, countries such as Sweden, Kazakhstan, Turkey and Russia are also on the list.
To this end came Afarak Group, a group with activity in the mining and chrome manufacturing sector, specialized in Southern Europe and South Africa. The company is listed on NASDAQ OMX Helsinki (AFAGR) and London Stock Exchange (AFRK).
The entry of the Albanian ferro-chrome into the Japanese market is to be emphasized, because it is very difficult to penetrate that market, and it is even more difficult to maintain the position due to too high standard and quality demands.
But Albchrome has succeeded in creating a very serious reputation in the world today, talking about the industry where it operates, as the company is known as a sustainable, high quality and absolutely credible manufacturer.
The Metalbulletin magazine has listed Albchrome as one of the top five Ferro-Chrome manufacturers in the world. This UK-based magazine is the largest magazine and specialized in publishing information on transactions, prices and achievements in the metal industry, including Ferro-Chrome.
