Hindalco Industry Limited , the metals flagship company Aditya Birla Group, is an industry leader in aluminium and Copper, A metal powerhouse with a consolidate turn over in excess of US$14 billion, Hindalco is the world‘s largest aluminium rolling company and one of the biggest producer of primary aluminium in Asia. Its copper smelter is the world‘s largest custom smelter at a single location. The group‘s operating unit is located at Renukoot, Renusagar and Silvassa. Hindalco commissioned its aluminium facility at Renukoot in Eastern U.P. in 1962. Later acquisition and mergers, with Indal, Birla Copper and Nifty and Mt. Gordon Copper Mines in Australia. Strengthened the company‘s Position in Value –added alumina, aluminium and Copper Products, with vertical Integration through access to captive copper concentrates.

The company initially had an aluminium smelting capacity of 20,000 tons per year (TPY) and aluminium refining capacity of 40,000 TPY. The facilities are located in Renukoot, In the State of Utter Pradesh in India. Continual expansions have seen smelting capacity grown 12 fold to 242,000 TPY, whereas aluminium refining capacity has been increased to 450,000TPY. With an outstanding record of capacity utilization, the company has grown into India‘s largest aluminium producer with a 40% share production. More significantly. Hindalco is firmly entrenched amongst the lowest cost producers of aluminium in the world.

The company has ISO 2002 Certification since 1994 and ISO 14001 Certification since 1998.
