A new century has arrived at Hall 4/F11, where a leading name in the aluminium industry is making its first appearance at the Paris air show.

Major commercial and military aircraft manufacturers have made Century Aluminium a preferred supplier of heat-treated plate.

Aerospace plate is Century's premier product, used in the past by NASA for fuel tanks on the Shuttle as well as on the new International Space Station.

Century has recently doubled its rolled plate capacity to 22,000 tonnes and acquired cast-plate plant from Alcoa in Los Angeles to complement its product line.
