Tim Murray, CEO of Aluminium Bahrain (Alba)

Long-term potential of Bahraini aluminium production

In a Global Platform video, Tim Murray, CEO of Aluminium Bahrain (Alba), talks about the growing significance of aluminium not only to Bahrain’s economy but to the global economy at large. Increased usage of the metal in the automotive and aerospace industries, as well as in residential construction, is expected to continue driving global demand for aluminium in the future. Bahrain is hoping to capitalise on this with its Line 6 Expansion Project, which is set to make Alba the biggest smelter in the world.


We are in a cost business so whoever wins on the cost, that's the name of the game. So, we always have to focus on cost because we don't control the prices, we don't control our raw materials. And we control production, efficiencies, what we do around the plant, where we deliver, where we buy from.
