A Soviet Enterprise's Journey from Domestic to Global Markets: The Adaptation Process of Mining Giant Norilsk Nickel
AbstractTwo Finnish geographers examine the adaptation process of former Soviet enterprise Norilsk Nickel to a market economy in the post-Soviet era. In a relatively short period of time, Norilsk Nickel has managed to achieve a leading position in the global metal market, particularly in the nickel and platinum business. Particular attention is paid to the impacts of the privatization and internationalization processes within the company. The authors explore the adaptation of Norilsk Nickel to the post-socialist business environment and compare the company's present operational basis to its Western competitors through a company analysis. The data comprises a survey among the workers of the company as well as interviews with mining experts and representatives from public sector authorities.
