Producing Alumina in South Texas for More Than 60 Years

The Sherwin plant has produced aluminum oxide, or alumina, at our Gregory, Texas location for more than sixty years beginning in 1953. Aluminum is a lightweight, durable and recyclable product used to make everyday products like smart phones, zippers, wiring, building materials and cars.

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 and ISO 14001 certified. The plant is capable of producing 1.65 million tonnes of smelter grade alumina 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.
