The Group entered the aluminium market in 1978, thanks to an agreement between ALCOA and VITTORIO CAUVIN for the distribution of special plates. The business developed gradually with the establishment of ALLUMINIO DI QUALITÀ in 1986. After the acquisition of Lampro Alluminio and Fover Alluminio, ALLUMINIO DI QUALITÀ has now become one of the leading Italian distributors of semi-finished aluminium products for the industrial, shipbuilding and construction markets.
CAUVIN METAL was established in 2011 and is the result of the spin-off of
VITTORIO CAUVIN’s ferrous and nonferrous metal trading activities.
After VITTORIO CAUVIN’s long experience as agent for BHP BILLITON in Italy, the company rapidly became one of the major Italian trader of primary aluminium and can provide financing, logistic services and hedging operations on the London Metal Exchange. Besides primary aluminium, CAUVIN METALS is also active in the trading and brokerage of lead, copper, zinc, aluminium powder and steel products.
