The Sherwin Alumina Company LLC, formerly Reynolds Metals Company-Sherwin Plant, has produced alumina at this location for more than fifty years beginning in 1953.
The primary function of the Sherwin plant is to extract aluminium oxide, called alumina, from bauxite ore. Sherwin, a "World Class" company, is ISO 9001 certified. The plant is capable of producing 1.4 million tonnes of smelter grade alumina and 300,000 tonnes of chemical grade alumina hydrate per year. Situated on the Texas Gulf Coast, Sherwin Alumina is located near North American smelting operations. Our deep water port, accessible by vessels with displacements of up to 60,000 tonnes, is the primary transportation mode for incoming bauxite and outgoing alumina. We also ship to customers by barge, rail, and truck.
