The Company

It is safe to say that the dynamics of ALUMINIUM has been the cornerstone of the development of the Greek aluminium manufacturing industry.

The Company

For half a century now, ALUMINIUM OF GREECE. has been a pillar of the Greek heavy industry sector. It was established in 1960 by Pechiney, the French metallurgy giant of the time, with the aim to exploit the rich bauxite deposits of Central Greece for producing alumina and aluminium.

The value of this investment, which proved a key strategic investment that drove economic growth and the development of know-how in Greece, multiplied over the years. In 2005, ALUMINIUM became a member of the MYTILINEOS Group and today is Europe’s most modern vertically integrated alumina and aluminium production and trading plant.

It would be safe to say that the dynamic profile of ALUMINIUM OF GREECE served as the cornerstone for the development of the Greek aluminium manufacturing industry, which today employs directly and indirectly some 40,000 people and is posting turnover figures in excess of 2 billion Euro or 0.7% of the country’s GDP.

Headquartered in Agios Nikolaos in the Prefecture of Viotia, on the northern coast of the Corinthian Gulf, the industrial complex of ALUMINIUM OF GREECE occupies an area of 750 hectares and employs 1,100 people directly and more than 400 ones indirectly, all of them residents of the wider region. From its establishment to this day, the Company has been a catalyst for local growth and is proud to support – and be supported by – generations of employees who are the driving force of an industry that is developing pioneering know-how at a global level.

With equal resolve, ALUMINIUM OF GREECE is also working to improve its social and environmental footprint, guided by the values of Corporate Social Responsibility, and is aiming to produce long-term benefits for society. Adhering to globally accepted environmental management standards and carrying out significant “green” investments, ALUMINIUM OF GREECE is committed to minimizing the unavoidable impact of its operations on the environment.
