Since establishing our site in Bridgnorth in the 1950s, Bridgnorth Aluminium Ltd has grown to become one of the town’s largest employers. Over 350 people work for us in a variety of operational, administrative and strategic roles. Our production capabilities have also expanded rapidly; we now produce approximately 100kt of aluminium products each year.
Our aluminium strip is formed from metal slabs, largely sourced from our own casthouse. Scrap metal and purchased ingot are melted, poured into moulds and then cast to form solid slabs. The metal slabs are then rolled on our hot-rolling and tandem mills to form a thin aluminium strip, coiled at the end of the line to facilitate transportation to our other process areas. Depending on the end product, the coiled aluminium strip is moved to one of our finishing centres for further processing:
- The original Litho Centre
- Litho Centre 2 (a £60m investment we made in 2015-16)
- Our multi-slitting line

As one of the largest businesses in Bridgnorth, we are in a position to greatly benefit our community by supporting local causes. Daniels Mill is one of the many organisations that benefits from our goodwill spending. Having sponsored the mill for several years now, we were keen to support the trust’s latest restoration project plans. The first stage of the project is to raise awareness via the updated website and retro-style leaflets that have been designed. We played our part at this stage by covering the cost of producing the mill’s new website. The second stage will be to carry out the restoration and we will no doubt be involved in some way!
