New Brand Driving the Future
With our new brand, Nexa, we are positioning ourselves as a global mining company, which uses its intelligence and expertise to continually develop and improve its mining operations. We launched the new brand in October 2017, when we launched the company’s IPO on the New York Stock Exchange in the United States and the Toronto Stock Exchange in Canada. The brand unites the best of two companies – Votorantim Metais and Milpo – and symbolizes the moment when operations in Brazil and Peru were integrated, while preserving the legacies of each.
The name, Nexa, is comprised of components of four words that define a company that is aligned with the sustainability principles: Next Future, Excellence, Extraction, and Nexus. This identifies our company as one that is thinking and creating for tomorrow – extracting ores in a responsible and efficient manner, and contributing to a better, more developed society.
With the challenge of building a global reputation, the Nexa brand maintains the same commitments to which Votorantim Metais and Milpo have been dedicated – operating in the same markets and sustaining relationships with the same stakeholders as a socioenvironmentally responsible company that is generating a legacy for the localities in which we are present. There are three fundamental elements that orient our activities: Above all, we are committed to the protection of life; We carry them out with the Votorantim DNA; and We drive development.
Nexa connects the mining world to people’s lives intelligently, enthusiastically and courageously – galvanizing and managing development as the basis for the evolution of society. We represent a new mining generation, conscious that the way we carry out mining today will have a future impact on the quality of life and the well-being of humankind and the environment.
