Alcoa was founded in the year 1888. The company has been operational for almost 130 years now. The founder of the company was Charles Martin Hall. The founder of the company discovered the process for smelting aluminium, and that was the only known process at that time for manufacturing aluminium. Therefore, with the help of Alfred E Hunt, Pittsburg Reduction Company was born.
By the year 1891, the company started its full-scale production. After World War I, a new factory was opened at Kensington, USA. From the year 1938 to 1940, the company was facing a trial with the USA Government, due to its monopoly control over the aluminium production market. Therefore, in order to combat this, two more factories were manufactured by the government, which were first operated by Alcoa, and was then later sold to the company’s rivals. Due to the increase in production costs during the 1970s, the company moved towards recycling aluminium and recycled 500 million pounds in 1985. In the year 2006, the company moved all of its executives from Pittsburg to New York City. Then in 2014, the company was fined $384 million by the USA government, for bribing Bahrani officials. As of 2016, the company plans to split itself into two companies.
The headquarters of the company is based at 390 Park Avenue. The name of the city is New York, while the name of the state is New York, USA. The pin code of the area is 10022-4608.
