Peel Regional Office
partnering stronger communities
 
The Peel region became a global ‘centre of excellence’ for the alumina industry, following the opening of our Peel Regional Office in 2008.
 
The region is also home to our Pinjarra and Wagerup alumina refineries, as well as the Willowdale and Huntly bauxite mines, so we thought it made good business sense to bring our essential support services closer to our operations.
 
Our move proved to the resources industry that support roles can and should be co-located near to their operations, to ensure employment and economic benefits are brought to local communities.
 
The office is a clear demonstration of Alcoa’s ongoing commitment to the Peel region and furthers our economic contribution through future employment opportunities for local community members, increased local expenditure for goods and services as well as community capacity building thanks to more people living and working locally.
 
There is no doubt that the Peel economy was boosted thanks to the increased number of local services being utilised by Alcoa. These services include: office security, cleaning, building maintenance, gardeners, recruitment companies, waste disposal and caters.
 
Of the 90 employees in the office, 60 relocated from Alcoa’s head office at Booragoon.  Those employees now take advantage of local services, such as drycleaners and doctors - boosting the local economy even further.
 
Alcoa also reaffirmed its position as a business leader in sustainability with the office designed for energy efficiency.

The former Premier of Western Australia, Alan Carpenter, officially opened the Peel regional office at a celebration event on 4 July 2008.
