Hulamin

Our core purpose is to consistently meet or exceed the reasonable expectations of our major stakeholders (which specifically include our employees, customers, suppliers, shareholders and the communities that surround us). We do this by creating value through the manufacture of high-value aluminium semi-fabricated products. In doing so, we contribute to the upliftment of the standard of living in the region. We achieve this by stimulating business activities associated with adding value to the large quantities of primary aluminium produced in the region and through pursuing related business opportunities within which we can further apply our capabilities.
