Aluminium Bahrain B.S.C. (Alba), now amongst the 1 Million-Club metric tonnes smelters, recorded the highest Sales volume and Production in 2018 according to a statement by Alba’s Chief Executive Officer, Tim Murray.
The Company reported Sales volume of 1,012,548 metric tonnes (mt) for the Full-Year of 2018, up by 3.5% Year-over-Year (YoY), versus 978,195 mt in 2017 while Production topped 1,011,101 mt when compared to 981,016 mt in 2017, up by 3% YoY. Alba finished 2018 strong with its Value-Added (VA) Sales averaging 60% of total shipments versus 57% in 2017.
Adding further, Murray said:
“What made us successful with recording new highs in 2018 Sales volume and Production is not what will make us successful when ramping-up Line 6. We must transform our mindset as Alba rise to become the largest smelter in the world.
On this occasion, I want to thank our employees and contractors for going the extra mile to make these achievements safe and possible.”
