Point Henry is a cultural landscape with many fascinating stories and Alcoa is a proud and active contributor to its history and future.
We have been part of the Geelong community since 1963, when our aluminium smelter poured its first metal. During five decades of operation, the facility produced more than 7.3 million tonnes of aluminium, employed thousands of people and added significant value to the local economy.
In 2014, Alcoa made the difficult decision to close its Point Henry operations. Since then, Alcoa has been working alongside the community to reimagine the site and unlock new potential within our landholdings through long-term land use planning.
At the same time, with a strong commitment to community consultation, and health, safety and environmental management, Alcoa has decommissioned the site and continues environmental remediation activities.
