Having developed expertise from building, maintaining and operating aluminium smelters and processing plants in the province, Québec equipment suppliers are now sharing this know-how around the globe for the construction of similar facilities.
Specialized suppliers are active in three main areas of the aluminium industry:
secondary production and remelting (not including casting facilities)
processing (casting semi-finished products)
The mapping of the Québec aluminium processing industry commissioned by AluQuébec inventoried 53 equipment suppliers of aluminium smelters and 43 businesses whose expertise supports aluminium processing activities.
