The Nitrogenous Fertilizer Plant Tîrgu-Mures known today as AZOMURES was founded in 1962 as a producer of nitrogenous fertilizers.

Over the years it has developed in several stages.
Together with the increase of the price of the energy, several high energy consumers from the older installations had been shut down.
The only installations to continue operations were the following: Ammonia III, Ammonia IV, Nitric Acid II, III and IV, Urea, Melamine, NPK, CET I and II and Ammonium Nitrate I, II and III. After 1990, AZOMURES had gone through several periods of restructuring, a privatization in the late 90s, and in 2012 the property was transferred to the Ameropa company.
