Sales/Distribution Europe

San Ciprian produces up to about eighty-five percent of Alcoa’s chemical grade products sold in the European region. The additional product, dry aluminium hydroxide, is imported from Alcoa’s alumina refinery at Kwinana, Australia.

From San Ciprian aluminium oxides and hydroxides (damp) are sold in either bulk or packaged form. Domestic deliveries are normally via truck and export, in bulk form, via sea going vessels.

In order to increase our presence in the European region, we have established warehouses at Moerdijk (The Netherlands) and Hull (England) for the sales and distribution of our aluminium hydroxides. The Moerdijk distribution center handles both damp and dry aluminium hydroxides and offers a variety of packaging options for these products. The Hull center handles dry hydroxide exclusively for silo truck deliveries.
