Top 11 U.S. aluminum and drawing companies

Posted by IndustryNet on Wednesday, October 10, 2018

100000282aluminum_rolls_coilThe products of aluminum rolling and drawing companies play an essential part in the everyday life of most Americans. Rail cars, aircraft and packaging materials all employ rolled aluminum products.

Almost 50 percent of aluminum alloys become feedstocks for aluminum rolling. Manufacturers of beverage cans use two million tons of this metal per year.

The use of rolled aluminum is also expected to expand in the automotive industry. It is also used to make components for climate control systems.

Electrical wiring is a significant market for drawn aluminum. Utilities in the 1900s first used the metal. Aluminum wiring is increasingly replacing copper in utility grids. It is also a popular choice for builders. Over the last 10 years, the demand has grown 20 percent. Weapons are also fabricated using drawn aluminum.

IndustryNet has compiled statistics on 57 U.S. companies that specialize in aluminum rolling and drawing. Average sales for this industry sector are $6.77 billion, and employment has grown by a third of a percent over the past year.
