Century Aluminum Company is a global producer of primary aluminum and operates aluminum reduction facilities in the United States and Iceland.
We operate three U.S. aluminum smelters, in Hawesville, Kentucky (Hawesville), Robards, Kentucky (Sebree) and Mt. Holly, South Carolina (Mt. Holly), and one smelter in Grundartangi, Iceland (Grundartangi). In 2008, we commenced construction on a new aluminum reduction facility in Helguvik, Iceland (Helguvik), construction of which is currently curtailed. Our primary aluminum facilities produce standard grade and value-added primary aluminum products.
Our strategic objective is to maximize the financial returns we generate for our stockholders by:
optimizing our safety and environmental performance;
improving our cost structure for our existing assets by managing costs and improving productivity and efficiency;
pursuing upstream investment opportunities in bauxite mining, alumina refining and the production of other key operating supplies; and
expanding our primary aluminum business by improving and investing in the facilities we currently own as well as constructing, investing in or acquiring additional capacity.
