Company background

Hindalco Industries, a major nonferrous metal producer in India, is the nucleus of the Aditya Birla Group, a principal successor of Birla Group, one of the country's three largest conglomerates. The company's main business is aluminum smelting and the manufacture of aluminum and copper products. With operations in more than 30 countries, most of its sales come from outside India.

Created in 1958, Hindalco opened an aluminum plant in the state of Uttar Pradesh in northern India in 1962. The head and founder of Birla Group, Ghanshyam das Birla, established Hindalco to move into the metals sector. After G.D. Birla died, the group was split into a number of companies, and Hindalco was taken over by one of these, Aditya Birla Group, which inherited the key businesses of its parent. The Aditya Birla Group, which has been led by Kumar Mangalam Birla since 1995, bought Novelis, a major U.S. producer of rolled aluminum products, in 2007 for $6 billion, significantly raising the group's profile in the global market for rolled aluminum.

The founding family and companies it owns control around 40% of Hindalco shares, with K. M. Birla serving as chairman.
