Annual demand for aluminum China, the largest consumer and producer in the industry, during 2011−2015. increases by an average of 8.7% -9%. The main «engines of progress» gaining the light metal consumption in China — transport and construction sectors. The energy sector is also making a considerable contribution to the development. In 2015, about 10 million. Tons of metal will be spent on construction of wind and solar sources of inexpensive energy.
The American company «Bonnel Aluminium» plans to increase capacity in the field of anodizing of aluminum profiles for the construction sector. Investments to modernize the line anodizing «Carthage» the plant, in the order of 5 million. USD. Completion of the project will be in the second quarter of 2015. This production capacity will increase by 35%. At the same time another positive aspect of modernization would be better customer service as expects Vice President of Sales and Marketing, Ira Indres.
