Our History

Weston Aluminium is a services company that provides innovative solutions to the aluminium and steel industries.

Established in 1996, by Managing Director Garbis Simonian, in partnership with Asahi Seiren Co. Ltd. of Japan, an opportunity was identified, in Australia, to process and recycle aluminium by-products in an environmentally efficient and responsible manner. Using the non salt processing from Japan as its core technology, Weston Aluminium has further developed its application of process all forms of aluminium bearing by-products, from the aluminium industry. 

Weston Aluminium adds value to all its streams, by manufacturing de-oxidants & sows from its recovered aluminium metal. The residual non metallic particles are manufactured into various products including fluxes. Desulphurising agents and slag conditioners for the steel industry and raw feed for the cement & building materials industries.
