Welcome to Anglesey Aluminium

Anglesey Aluminium Metal Limited (AAM) is jointly owned by Rio Tinto (51 per cent) and Kaiser Aluminum & Chemical Corporation (49 per cent) and began operating in 1971. On 30th September 2009 AAM ceased smelting operations due to not being able to source a commercially viable power contract. In October 2009 Anglesey Aluminium transformed its operations into a Remelt facility for the continued production of billet to meet the needs of its stakeholders. Anglesey Aluminium’s portfolio covers the UK and mainland Europe.

Over the last 2 years Anglesey Aluminium have been keen to develop a sustainable legacy for the local community and have been working with the Welsh Government and the Isle of Anglesey County Council to create employment and generate economic activity in the area.

 
 

The health and safety of all employees, contractors and visitors is a high priority for the smelter. Our aim is to achieve zero injuries. To help effectively manage the environmental activities, AAM has implemented the international standard ISO14001 Environmental Management System (EMS). Anglesey Aluminium received certification in March 2001 and continues to maintain these requirements. Internal and external audits are carried out on the EMS to ensure system compliance and continuous improvement across our operations.

Anglesey

Anglesey Aluminium Metal Limited is located near the community of Holyhead in Wales, United Kingdom on the Isle of Anglesey. This Island known as "Ynys Môn" in Welsh is situated off the north-west coast of Wales near the beautiful Snowdonia mountain range. It is separated from the mainland by the Menai Strait, which is spanned by two picturesque bridges, the Menai Bridge and the Britannia Bridge.

Anglesey has several small towns scattered around the island, making it quite evenly populated. The largest towns are Holyhead, Llangefni, Menai Bridge and Amlwch. Beaumaris (Welsh: Biwmares), in the east of the island, features Beaumaris Castle, built by Edward I as part of his Bastide Town campaign in North Wales. Beaumaris acts as a yachting centre for the region, with many boats moored in the bay or off Gallows Point. The village of Newborough (Welsh: Niwbwrch), in the south, created when the townsfolk of Llanfaes were relocated to make way for the building of Beaumaris Castle, includes the site of Llys Rhosyr, another of the courts of the mediaeval Welsh princes, which features one of the oldest courtrooms in the United Kingdom. Llangefni is located in the centre of the island and is also the island's administrative centre.

 
 

The town of Menai Bridge (Welsh: Porthaethwy) (in the south-east) expanded when the first bridge to the mainland was being built, in order to accommodate workers and construction. Up until that time Porthaethwy had been one of the principal ferry crossing points from the mainland. A short distance from this town lies Bryn Celli Ddu, a Stone Age burial mound. Also nearby is the village with the longest official place name in the United Kingdom, Llanfairpwllgwyngyllgogerychwyrndrobwllllantysiliogogogoch. Near it is Plas Newydd, ancestral home of the Marquesses of Anglesey. The town of Amlwch is situated in the northeast of the island and was once largely industrialised, having grown during the 18th century supporting the copper mining industry at Parys Mountain.
