Alcoa metals summary

Report summary

Having originated in 1888 as the Pittsburgh Reduction Company, Alcoa found its modern name in 1907. Alcoa has interests in all the stages of the aluminium value chain from bauxite to fabricated products. In September 2015, Alcoa announced it would split its upstream assets from downstream; creating two publically traded companies in the process. The upstream assets would comprise Alcoa's bauxite, alumina, primary metal, cast house and power business units, while downstream would include the value added engineering solution and technology businesses.
