Alcoa's operations consist of four worldwide business groups: 1) Engineered Products and Solutions (EPS), 2) Global Rolled Products (GRP), 3) Global Primary Products (GPP, Alumina and Primary Metals) and 4) Transportation and Construction Solutions (TCS). The Company discusses the groups in terms of downstream, midstream (also downstream and midstream collectively, the “value-add businesses”) and upstream (also the “commodity business”) as its products range from post-production and point of sale to exploration and production, respectively.


Downstream | Engineered Products and Solutions; Transportation and Construction Solutions


Engineered Products and Solutions

A diversified portfolio of three businesses, with a core focus on solutions for the growing aerospace market:

  • Power and Propulsion: Multi-material airfoils for jet engines and industrial gas turbines
  • Fastening Systems & Rings: Multi-material fasteners for aerospace and transportation vehicles
  • Forgings and Extrusions: Large and complex, multi-material fabricated parts and structures used across various end markets such as aerospace, automotive, defense and oil and gas.


Transportation and Construction Solutions

Delivers multi-material, value-added solutions focused on two strategic markets:

  • Building & Construction Systems: Commercial architectural systems including building facades, walls, store fronts and windows
  • Wheel & Transportation Products: Forged aluminum vehicle wheels for commercial transportation


Midstream | Global Rolled Products


This segment is structured into two market-facing business units:

  • Global Packaging: Rigid container sheet used for beverage and food cans, industrial packaging and specialty foil in Brazil; and
  • Aerospace, Transportation and Industrial: Aluminum plate and sheet developed for these three end markets.


Upstream | Global Primary Products


Focused on all aspects of aluminum production: mining, refining, smelting, casting and energy.

  • Alumina: This segment mines bauxite, which is then refined into alumina. Alcoa is the largest global bauxite producer and world's leading producer of alumina; and
  • Primary Metals: The worldwide smelter system produces primary aluminum used by Alcoa's fabricating businesses and sold to external customers and traders. Our operations also include power facilities, which generate approximately 20% of the power used at Alcoa's smelters worldwide. Two-thirds of our global smelting capacity is supported by renewable based energy.

Alcoa to Separate into Two Industry-Leading Public Companies, Completing Successful Multi-Year Transformation


On September 28, 2015, Alcoa announced it would be launching two strong standalone companies, providing shareholders with two distinct, value-creating investment opportunities.


The Upstream Company, conserving the Alcoa name, is to be a highly competitive global leader in bauxite, alumina and aluminum, with a unique portfolio of value-add smelters and casthouses, and substantial energy assets.


The Value-Add Company, to be named at a later date, is to be a premier innovator of high performance multi-material products and solutions in attractive growth markets.


The transaction is expected to be completed in the second half of 2016.
