At the same time, these investments have allowed the manufacturing of high and very high value-added aluminum products, which made ALRO one of the exclusive club members of the global manufacturers for the aeronautical industry.

His Excellency, Mr. David SARANGA, Ambassador of the State of Israel to Romania, appreciated the extremely high potential for cooperation between ALRO and the companies from his country in using aluminum and processed aluminum products manufactured in Slatina within Israel’s industry.
