Industry Report - Industry Investment Chapter

The Aluminum Manufacturing industry's use of large-scale machinery and equipment for functions such as smelting, extruding, rolling and drawing, makes it capital intensive. For every dollar spent on wages, manufacturers in this industry spend $0.28 on machinery, equipment and other capital expenses. The refining of alumina and the smelting and reprocessing of primary aluminum are the industry's most capital-intensive operations. Production of secondary aluminum from scrap and rolling are also capital-intensive processes, though to a lesser extent than primary smelting and alumina processing. Ongoing capital investment is required in order to satisfy customer specifications, compete effectively on the basis of price and turnaround time and minimize operating costs... purchase to read more
