Alba to support global aluminium summit
Manama, June 19, 2010
Aluminium Bahrain (Alba), one of the largest aluminium smelters in the world, will showcase its products as well as expand ties with industry leaders at an upcoming international aluminium conference in Oslo.
The 15th edition of CRU’s World Aluminium Conference will take place from June 21 to 23 at the Radisson Blu Plaza.
The conference is widely considered to be an authoritative event for senior level decision makers in the aluminium industry from around the world.
CRU is an independent business analysis and consultancy group focused on the mining, metals, power, cables, fertiliser and chemical sectors. Founded in the late 1960s and still privately owned to ensure its independence, the group employs more than 200 experts in London, Beijing, Santiago, Sydney and key centres within the US.
“The European market presents a fantastic growth opportunity for Alba as we remain committed towards increasing the global presence of our product portfolio,” said Laurent Schmitt, Alba’s chief executive.
“Presently, sales to Europe occupy nearly 10 to 15 per cent of our output, and we have already outlined a strategy to develop this market further and profit from the opportunities available.”
“It is our privilege to support CRU’s World Aluminium Conference once again, and to take advantage of this global platform that brings together leaders from the aluminium industry for networking, pursuing business leads, and to learn about new technologies, innovations and developments in the industry,” he concluded.
Alba will also have an exhibition stand at the sidelines of conference to showcase its wide range of high-quality aluminium products. – TradeArabia News Service
