Alcoa employs approx. 830 people in Norway. The head office is located in the capitol, Oslo.
Alcoa's presence in Norway began in 1962 through a partnership with Elkem ASA to operate smelters in Lista and Mosjøen. Today those two facilities are 100% Alcoa owned and operated on clean hydropower, with a combined output of 286,000 metric tons per year. Alcoa also operates an anode plant in Mosjøen which supplies the Mosjøen smelter as well as Alcoa Fjardaal in Iceland.
With modern casthouse technology and clean potroom metal, Alcoa Norway serves European rolling mills, extrusion plants and foundries. Alcoa Norway is well known for its JIT shipments and consistent metal quality - a flexible supplier close to the markets in Europe.
The Alcoa facilities at Lista and in Mosjøen are among the regions’ largest industry companies, and key driving force for innovation in both the Agder region and the Nordland region. Many Alcoa technologies have been developed in Norway, among them; New Søderberg, cleansing technology, energy recovery technology, small pre-bake ovens, cast house technology, niche products and anodes. Alcoa Norway also reduced greenhouse gas emissions with 55 % between 1990 and 2011.
The communities of Mosjøen and Lista are both situated in municipalities that have a fine offer of education, leisure activities and public services. The municipalities also offers full day care for all children, and the real estate market is very satisfactory.
