Ekaterinburg Non-Ferrous Metals Processing Plant (EZOCM) performs a full range of precious metals refining and processing services, and manufactures industrial products from gold, silver and platinum group metals.

The plant went into operation on October 23, 1916, and became the first in Russia to manufacture technical products from precious metals. 

Today EZOCM is a modern, efficient private enterprise with a history of development spanning over a century. In 2016, an international group of companies united under the Plaurum umbrella brand was created on the foundation of EZOCM. The enterprise specializes in the manufacture of products for technical use and semifinished products from platinum group metals, gold, silver and their alloys.

These products and semifinished products are used in chemical, glass, automotive, construction, medical, electrical, instrument engineering, mechanical engineering, mining and other industries, as well as in the production of composite materials.

The product range includes more than 300,000 products made of precious metals and alloys for industrial use. 

The company offers its Russian and international customers new goods based on advanced research and development technologies and made to satisfy their ever-increasing demands for high-quality product.


In 2019, EZOCM expanded its range to include a number of new types of products for the appliance and nuclear industries, and modernized its wiredrawing, forging and analytical lab equipment.

In addition, the plant expanded its geography of sales, exporting its goods to Vietnam and Taiwan for the first time. 

EZOCM has successfully been certified to the ISO 9001:2015 quality management system standard.
