Aluminum Exemplary Exporter
In March 1991, when Almahdi Aluminum
Corporation (AAC) was established in the Bandar Abbas Special Economic Mines
and Metals Zone, the initial plan was for it to produce 220,000 tons of
aluminum per year, with this figure being able to rise to 330,000 tons per
The AAC is currently producing at an
annual rate of 55,000 tons, but will boost that figure to 110,000 tons of
primary aluminum with the completion of its first developmental phase by March
The company sees 90% of its monthly
production shipped off overseas; to countries such as India, China, Japan,
Taiwan, Indonesia, Italy, United Arab Emirates and
Vietnam being the main importers.
The execution of Phase 2 is currently
underway with Almahdi’s Projects and Development Department concluding several
contracts in this regard. This phase is planned to be finalized by mid-2005,
which will see the establishment of 240 new smelter pots. The execution of
Phase 3 is also under appropriate studies for reaching a final decision.
The Anode Manufacturing Plant is an
example of the actions taken by company. This plant will commence production
by mid-2004. When this plant commences production at 220,000 tons per year,
$70 million in foreign exchange saving will be achieved.
Another example of the company’s
activities is registering its production (Aluminum Sows) in the London Metals
Exchange as well as obtaining the ISO 9001 Standard Certificate.
