5N is an employee-based spinoff of a major Canadian mining and metals company that has increasingly focused on electronics. The company was established in June of 2000 and branched into hydrometallurgical operations. It expanded its facilities to serve domestic and international clients up to 2007, when its shares (ticker: VNP) listed on the Toronto Stock Exchange. 5N Plus subsequently expanded into the semiconductor market by purchasing all of its subsidiary Sylarus Technologies (renamed 5N Plus Semiconductors) in April 2014. A month later, 5N purchased a Canadian company with large intellectual property holdings for micron-sized solar and AM powders used in electronic markets.
