Hydro Aluminium's products can be turned into anything from soda cans to car bodies. The company forms Norsk Hydro's aluminum business and accounts for just about all of the Norwegian industrial corporation's sales. Hydro Aluminium ranks among the world's top five aluminum producers along with the likes of Rio Tinto Alcan, RUSAL, and Alcoa. While based in Europe, Hydro conducts business worldwide and is particularly strong in North America and Asia. It divides its business into two units, aluminum metal (the upstream business) and aluminum products (the downstream business). The first segment produces bauxite, alumina, and primary aluminum products, while the second manufactures rolled and extruded products.
