Metallurgy Sector

Metlen is a leader in the Metallurgy industry. Operating the only vertically integrated bauxite, alumina and primary aluminum production unit in all of Europe with privately owned port facilities and the largest electricity cogeneration unit, Metlen has dynamically entered the sector of recycled aluminum and zinc lead recycling.


“Aluminum of Greece” is the largest vertical producer of aluminum and alumina in the EU and one of the most robust growing industrial companies in Greece. Its international business activity is a driving force for the national economy, but also for the development of the Greek region. It has completed more than 50 years of operation and 15 years of development, with investments that exceed €600 million dedicated on the technological modernization of the facilities and the development of the factory's production and efficiency.

Together with Delphi Distomon, which is the second largest producer of bauxite in Greece and by extension in Europe, annual production exceeds 570,000 tons of bauxite from underground construction sites alone.

The company's focus on sustainability is reinforced by its subsidiary EP.AL.ME, which is the largest independent producer of recycled aluminum (recast).

The industrial production of Metlen in the facilities of Volos is oriented towards particularly demanding technological applications. These are usually heavy and/or complex metal constructions, with high quality requirements.
