Eric Roegner – pictured above, chief operating officer for Alcoa investment castings, forgings, and extrusions – explains the company’s aerospace solutions role.

Alcoa does a lot more than supply aluminum. The company also is a global leader in lightweight materials engineering and manufacturing. It holds key market positions in aerospace sheet and plate produced by its midstream business, Global Rolled Products (GRP). Its downstream business, Engineered Products and Solutions (EPS), produces aerospace forgings, extrusions, investment castings, and fastening systems. In 2013, these two value-add businesses – GRP and EPS – accounted for 57% of Alcoa’s total revenues. Alcoa’s downstream component is composed of businesses heavily weighted toward aerospace. Unlike the sheet and plate business, most of the downstream businesses will both design and qualify parts such as fasteners or investment castings, where the company will work closely with a customer to optimize form, fit, and Continue Reading

Category : Strategy

AMIT Kalyani 002

Bharat Forge Ltd has chalked out a two-level strategy to double its annual revenue by 2018 from around ₹3,500 crore now. Nearly half of this will come from non-auto businesses. The strategy essentially involves moving from components into systems, and then become a provider of complete solutions in both the auto sector and non-auto industries. In a conversation with BusinessLine, Amit Kalyani, Executive Director, spelt out the Pune-based forging company’s plans.

You plan to double revenue in a little over three years. How will you achieve this?
