The company began manufacturing aluminium powders in 1940, at Birmingham in the UK, when Metal and Alloys, the former parent company, became a supplier of coarse powders for military applications.

In 1969 Alpoco was incorporated and in 1970 a powder atomising facility was established on a new site at Holyhead, North Wales. 

Alpoco is a versatile, accomplished and independent producer of a complete range of specialised aluminium, aluminium alloy powders and granules. 

From humble beginnings, manufacturing basic powders for explosives, Alpoco now supplies high purity powders for pigments, metallurgical, and chemical requirements, using superfine spherical and irregular shaped micron sized powders for critical applications.

Our products continue to evolve, which allows us to broaden the range and complexity of industries now served. 

Encouraging joint research projects with our suppliers and customers to ensure on going product development, where appropriate enables Alpoco and customers alike to grow in a fast changing environment.

Alpoco occupies a leading position globally, through manufacturing bespoke powders to exacting needs of the industries.
