ABAL was founded on May 15, 1970 by the primary aluminum producing companies Alcan Alumínio do Brasil Ltda., Alcominas (currently Alcoa Alumínio S.A.) and Companhia Brasileira de Alumínio (CBA), as well as by the processing companies Aisa Alumínio Indústria Ltda, Asa Alumínio S.A. Extrusão e Laminação and Kaiser Alumínio do Brasil S.A. In early 1980s, Aisa and Asa were merged with Alcoa Alumínio S.A. Then, a common forum aimed to address aluminum industry related issues was established, towards combining interests from both producers and processors with the growing representation of the aluminum industry before the government and the community in these industry-concerned matters.
