Aluminium Processing


The primary production of aluminium is only the first link in a long value chain. After primary production comes processing, which produces many semi-finished and finished products for a variety of industries.

 

The delivery value of aluminium products is upwards of $6.7 billion, which represents a sizeable revenue for Québec’s economy.

Processors use different processes to exploit aluminium:

 

  • Primary processing, namely ingots and billets offered in a wide range of shapes and alloys
  • Rod and cable production
  • Rolling
  • Extrusion
  • Forging
  • Smelting
  • Aluminium powder, cutting and surface treatments

  • Construction
  • Equipment and machinery
  • Transport equipment
