Jegunovce (Macedonian Cyrillic: Јегуновце) is one of the larger villages in the Polog Valley, Republic of Macedonia. It is located about 10mi (15km) northeast of the Macedonian city of Tetovo. It is the center of the Jegunovce municipality.



Jegunovce began to grow from a village into a small town after World War II, when the new Yugoslav government under Josip Broz Tito built a massive metallurgical plant (working mostly with chromium) in the area. The plant was named Jugohrom, and was one of the largest employers in Yugoslavia. The plant was renamed Silmak in 2002, and closed in 2006.[1]. After reopening and closing later on again in early 2009 due to the world financial crisis and rapid decline in demand, Silmak started its operations again in July, 2009.
