An industry leader in aluminium and copper, Hindalco Industries Limited, the metals flagship company of the Aditya Birla Group is the world's largest aluminium rolling company and one of the biggest producers of primary aluminium in Asia. Its copper smelter is amongst the largest single location custom smelter globally.
Established in 1958, it commissioned its aluminium facility at Renukoot in eastern Uttar Pradesh, India in 1962. Later, acquisitions and mergers with Indal, Birla Copper and the Nifty and Mt Gordon copper mines in Australia (the latter mines controlled via a dominant stake in ASX-listed Aditya Birla Minerals) strengthened its position in value-added alumina, aluminium and copper products.
The acquisition of Novelis Inc. in 2007 positioned it among the top five aluminium majors worldwide and the largest vertically integrated aluminium company in India. Today, we are a metals powerhouse present in two of the fastest growing metal segments; aluminium and copper, with global footprints in 13 countries and with a consolidated turnover of US$14.8 billion.
