Permanent Cathode Manufacturing

The trusted experts for new cathode manufacturing

For more than 40 years, The EPCM Group has supplied the world’s leading copper, nickel, manganese, and cobalt producers with the highest-performing newly manufactured cathodes.

EPCM operates the largest cathode manufacturing and refurbishment centres in the world, located in North America, South America, and Europe. Unlike other cathode manufacturers, EPCM leverages insights gained from its cathode repair operations to continually improve the design and durability of new cathodes. That means our clients reap the benefits of superior design and longer-lasting cathodes – translating to stronger operational results.
