We carry out the global procurement and supply of aluminum alloys used in vehicle engines and transmission cases, and aluminum alloy raw materials.
Aluminum alloys are light and strong, and have played a major role in making cars lighter, contributing to improved fuel efficiency and exhaust gas reduction. Aluminum alloys are low cost and recyclable, and as such they are of increasing importance.
We will utilize our information gathering strengths, brought about through the development of global bases, in order to provide flexible services that meet the needs of the market.
- Procurement and supply of aluminum alloy raw materials (virgin ingots, base metals, scrap, silicon metal, etc.)
- Supply of aluminum alloys (ingots and molten aluminum)
- Aluminum recycling, etc.
Main areas in which supplied materials are used
We supply our customers with liquid aluminum (molten aluminum) from aluminum manufacturing plants built in the vicinity of our customers.
There is no need for our customers to re-melt aluminum products when they use the aluminum, and this contributes to reducing energy and facilities costs, as well as achieving major reductions in the burden placed on the environment.
Honda Trading Europe sources different types of Aluminium scrap from across Europe and as far as Russia to supply to our Molten Aluminium plants across the world as well as our factories in Japan. European scrap is in high demand across the world due to European scrap supplier capability to produce very clean high grade materials which can be guaranteed to be free of contaminants.
Aluminium is a publicly traded commodity and as such it is often subject to heavy price fluctuations. In order to minimise the impact of price volatility, Honda Trading Europe has established methods to help stabilise prices.
Honda Trading Europe and its suppliers in Europe are involved with procuring and processing most of the aluminium that is used at Hondas' European production facilities.
