Commenting on this visit, Alba's Chairman of the Board Shaikh Daij bin Salman bin Daij Al Khalifa said:
"A game changer, Line 6 has made Alba the world's largest aluminium smelter ex-China. The organic growth which the Company has embarked on with Line 6 in operations has seen Alba top new records in its financial performance and scale the ranks to join the US$720 million club for the first time in its Net Profits for the nine-months period of 2021.
I also take this opportunity to thank Line 6 team for an unparalleled performance and for maintaining Operational and Safety standards at all times."
