Indalco® Alloys, Inc.

For more than 25 years, Indalco® Alloys has produced a broad range of premium aluminum alloy TIG (GTAW) cut lengths and MIG (GMAW) wires in a variety of convenient packages for projects large and small.

The Company also serves as a continuous cast redraw producer for other processors of aluminum wire products.
