We celebrate 43 years of Molycop Peru

Molycop Peru proudly celebrated its 43rd anniversary on 29 June, reaffirming our position as a strategic partner to Peruvian mining.

Key Facts

  • Molycop Peru is proud to announce 43 years of dedication and commitment to its clients – and driving change and growth in Peruvian mining.
  • In that time, we have demonstrated our commitment to community development and education, and our respect for the environment.  
  • We look forward to many more years of success and creating opportunities for our people, our communities and our industry.
On Molycop Peru’s 43rd anniversary, we celebrate more than four decades of dedication and commitment to our clients and, in addition, being job generators and agents of change in the development of Peruvian mining. 

From day one, we have worked with determination, prioritising safety, respect for the environment and attention to the needs of our workers, communities, customers and stakeholders and, likewise, our focus and commitment to unsurpassed quality.
On this occasion, we would like to reaffirm our determination to accompany the Sustainable Development of mining, reinforcing and promoting the three pillars that guide our efforts and will continue to be the basis for achieving our objectives:
  • Work better for the future, focusing on environmental issues.
  • Doing what matters, ensuring we maintain our focus on people and community.
  • Doing the right thing, managing our organisation with strong ethics and governance arrangements.
In this sense, I would like to highlight the following:

Our commitment to development and education

One of our principles is the commitment to the development of the communities where we operate and to the promotion of education for future generations of Peru. We are convinced that education is the basis for a better future. For this reason, we actively work to support educational initiatives that benefit young Peruvians. Our approach not only promotes the development of the industry, but also the comprehensive growth of our society and country.

The environment: a fundamental priority

Respect and care for the environment are fundamental values at Molycop. We strive to minimise our environmental impact, placing emphasis on the efficient management of water and electrical energy. Likewise, we constantly seek to implement sustainable practices and projects, as well as innovative technologies that allow us to operate responsibly.

Innovation as the engine that drives us towards the future

We are committed to constantly improving the quality of our products and services, as well as the human development and professional growth of all our colleagues. We are proud to have a team of dedicated and talented people who constantly work to overcome challenges and meet their objectives and those of our operations.

Security as a value

Safety is more than a priority – it is an intrinsic value in our DNA that guides all our decisions and actions. We highlight and promote the importance of maintaining safety at every step, seeking to prevent injuries and ensure a safe and healthy environment for everyone. We do not compromise the safety of people or our operations.

Growth and diversity: key elements for success

It is essential to encourage the growth and diversity of our team. We are proud and motivated to see, more frequently, how talented women join our team, showing great interest in their work and in the mining industry. We believe that each member brings a unique perspective that enriches and strengthens us.

Overcoming challenges and looking to the future

These last 43 years have been full of challenges. It is leadership, commitment and teamwork that has allowed us to overcome each obstacle and consolidate ourselves in the industry. We maintain our look to the future with hope, as well as our decision to continue working hard to contribute to the development of the industry and accompany the Sustainable Development of mining.
We celebrate 43 years of history with the satisfaction of having fulfilled our duties and we keep our eyes set on a future full of opportunities. Our achievements are the result of the effort and dedication of our workers, whose commitment and talent are fundamental to our operation. It is an honour to work with such a valuable team. Together, we will overcome any challenge and build a better tomorrow for everyone.

Happy 43rd anniversary, Molycop Peru! Here's to many more years of success and growth!
