Alcoa is a global aluminum supplier and its product portfolio includes Bauxite, Alumina and Aluminum. Our Aluminum segment includes aluminum smelting and casting, along with the majority of the energy assets.
Aluminum smelting is an important contributor to our portfolio. We further improved our smelting assets when we met our goal of moving to the 38th percentile on the global cost curve in 2016. The unit is well positioned to benefit from improved future market conditions.
We demonstrate leading technology and innovation with our differentiated, sustainable array of aluminum cast products for end-market customers. Our global casthouse network produces billet, foundry, rod and slab products in North America and Europe that are alloyed and cast into specific shapes to meet customer demand in the automotive, building and construction, electrical, industrial and transportation markets.
