Alba welcomes high-level delegation from Aleastur

MANAMA, January 18, 2022

Aluminium Bahrain (Alba), the world’s largest smelter ex-China, recently welcomed a high-level delegation from Spanish-based Aleastur, a specialist in the manufacturing of specialty alloys for the aluminium industry.

The Aleastur delegation comprising Leopoldo Galán - MD Aleastur Aluminium Business Unit & COO, Enrique Sela - Country Manager Aleastur Middle East, Alberto Fernández - Interim Plant Manager Aleastur Middle East and Meshari Saeed - Production Manager Aleastur Middle East were welcomed by Alba’s Chief Executive Officer Ali Baqali, Khalid A Latif, Chief Marketing Officer, Waleed Tamimi Chief Supply Officer and other senior officials from Alba.

While Alba and Aleastur have been in a long-standing business partnership spanning more than two decades, Alba will look forward to supplying its metal to Aleastur’s state-of-the-art aluminium grain refiners and master alloys’ production facility in the Kingdom which was recently announced as part of the Kingdom’s Aluminium Downstream Park.

Commenting on this visit, Alba’s Chief Executive Officer Ali Al Baqali said: “We see massive opportunities when one of our suppliers launch their first overseas facility in Bahrain to cater not only for us but also to major Aluminium producers and casthouses in the region.

“What makes this move all the way interesting is that Alba will be the supplier of choice for high-quality Aluminium for their Bahrain facility, thus making Aleastur Alba’s customer and supplier at the same time. We also look forward to strengthening our ties with Aleastur on different fronts especially in respect to ESG discipline.””

Aleastur’s CEO Sergio Martinez stated: “Today we officially delivered to Alba, a long-term customer and strategic player in the industry, the first material manufactured in our new plant in Bahrain. This milestone is full of meaning for Aleastur GROUP, which represents our upgraded global capabilities and confirms our full commitment to our peers in the region.” –TradeArabia News Service
