And every one of our 10,000+ employees plays a role in shaping the future – of our company and our world. That’s real impact.
Possibility. It Starts Here from day one, and it never stops. Because we pride ourselves on offering our employees the opportunities, development, and support they deserve.
Creating History One Innovation at a Time – It Starts Here.
The company known today as Novelis – the world’s leading producer of rolled aluminum products – emerged as a spin-off in 2005, from the Canadian aluminum company Alcan, Inc. In 2007, Novelis was acquired by Hindalco Industries Limited, another veteran of the aluminum business. Hindalco is the flagship company of the Aditya Birla Group of companies, a multinational conglomerate headquartered in Mumbai, India. Following the merger, Novelis became a wholly owned subsidiary of Hindalco.
While that might sound fairly recent, our roots and heritage actually extend almost a century.
Our Story – It Starts Here.
Novelis inherited its core assets, manufacturing know-how and corporate structure from Alcan, which began rolling operations in 1916 in Toronto, Ontario, with an 84-inch hot mill and three finishing mills. Over the years, a number of mills were constructed, including several that are among the largest aluminum rolling operations in each of Novelis’ operating locations. These include:
- Oswego, United States (1963) – a major hot mill producer of can stock and industrial sheet.
- Norf, Germany (1967) – the world’s largest aluminum rolling mill in terms of capacity.
- Pindamonhangaba, Brazil (1977) – the only South American plant producing beverage can body and end stock.
And we continue to advance:
More recent expansions were made through both acquisitions and modernization of existing mills, which increased the company’s rolling capabilities and capacity.
Today, Novelis’ history represents a unique combination of new and old – the best of legacy-honoring tradition and forward-looking innovation. With the help of the industry’s top talent, and our commitments to closed-loop recycling and innovative, sustainable solutions, Novelis is creating an amazing future, and we want you to be part of it.

Sustainability and Volunteerism
Embracing A New Way of Doing Business –
It Starts Here.
The idea of sustainability is that we derive the greatest benefit possible from our resources now, without depleting them for the future. And by this definition, sustainability is not just part of our business strategy; it’s actually at the heart of everything we do at Novelis. We know that if we are to improve peoples’ lives through the work we do, and leave the world a better place in the process, It Starts Here, right now with us.
Leading our Industry
At Novelis, we view sustainability as a key source of our competitive advantage. Historically, the aluminum industry has relied on a largely linear business model, with primary (mined) aluminum being the key input. Increasingly, recycled aluminum is becoming a more prominent part of the value chain, and Novelis is leading the way. In fact, recently, through our commitment to closed-loop recycling and the sustainability it yields, Novelis has achieved a balance of 70% primary vs. 30% recycled aluminum input.
Increasing the security and future of our aluminum supply, while dramatically reducing production costs, and the carbon footprint of our company and our industry’s, is a great start to creating a better future.
Benefiting our Community
Novelis cares equally about sustaining the communities where we work and live. We engage in a wide array of community initiatives, many of which are run at the local level through our Novelis Neighbor program. These initiatives fall into three main areas of focus: safety, math and science education, and recycling. Two such initiatives – Habitat for Humanity and FIRST Robotics – are global in scope.
Giving Back with our Time and Talent
At Novelis, we do more than lend our words or even our money to causes which aid our communities and lead to a more sustainable world. Giving back through employee volunteerism is part of who we are. Our employees are generous with their time and talents, donating thousands of hours annually to various programs that benefit the communities in which we live and work. These include:
Good Neighbor Giving Program – a local program that invests in non-profit organizations and other community initiatives focused on Education and Youth Development, Environment and Recycling, and Health and Wellness. Our contribution goal is one percent of pre-tax income annually.
Global Recycling Education Program – an aluminum recycling education program targeted to children and youth that encourages our employees to promote recycling in their communities. The initiative’s goal is to be active in 50 schools or community groups through the recycling education program.
Learning and Development
At Novelis, we understand that if we are to make the most of our opportunities as a company, It Starts Here, with helping our people maximize their potential. That’s why we invest millions of dollars in employee development resources, including a dedicated Global Leadership Center (GLC) at our worldwide headquarters in Atlanta, GA.
