Robert Yildirim of Yildirim Holdings won’t stop dealing. He recently concluded a sevenyear offtake agreement with Russia’s Kluchevsky for chromium metal and ultra low-carbon ferrochrome. The agreement has another seven-year option. Yildirim’s EtiKrom already supplies the Russian plant with its primary feed.
In addition, Yildirim raised conversion costs at its Bear Metallurgical moly and vanadium reprocessing plant for 2018 based on higher raw material prices.
