It is a joint stock enterprise employing over 1,000 people and generating more than 150 million euros in sales revenues per annum, with exports into demanding global markets accounting for more than 80 percent of this total.

Cinkarna Celje also participates in different sports disciplines and events, one of them being Poslovna nogometna liga - a football business league, active under the Football Association of Slovenia.

The football team of the company finished second in the 2018/19 season of the Štajerska regional league of Poslovna nogometna liga and won Business Cup 2019 Kidričevo last month.
