Rusal becomes preferred supplier to Kosei

Rusal becomes preferred supplier to Kosei

(Posted on 24/02/21)

Rusal, a leading global aluminium producer, has announced that it has been named the preferred global supplier of high-quality primary foundry alloys for Kosei, the global wheel and auto components manufacturer.

Founded in 1950, Kosei designs and manufactures wheels, autoparts and components. It has 14 sites operating in seven countries, Kosei has a truly international reach. For the past thirty years, RUSAL has worked closely with the Company, provided primary foundry aluminium alloys to Kosei factories in India, Japan, Thailand, and USA.

RUSAL is among the world’s leading producers of low-carbon aluminium. Its ALLOW brand of low-carbon aluminium comes with average carbon footprint of 2.4 tonnes of CO2 equivalent per tonne of aluminium produced (Scope 1&2, at smelter) which is several times lower than the global average of around 12 t (Scope 1&2, at smelter).

Kosei uses ALLOW to produce wheels and essential components for a number of globally renowned brands: Toyota, Honda, Nissan, Suzuki, Mazda, Subaru, Mahindra, Isuzu, Daihatsu, among others. The use of the ‘green’ metal in its products complements Kosei’s advanced engineering and innovative processes to produce best-in-class aluminium products for a range of applications, from cars, to bikes, to boats, to jet skis.

Last year RUSAL became a member of the Japan Climate Leaders’ Partnership (JCLP), a powerful coalition of businesses seeking to advance the goals of decarbonisation and sustainable business. RUSAL joined the 163 companies of the JCLP, and contributes to its important work, which focuses on the communication of business trends, innovations and analysis for a low-carbon, and ultimately a carbon free, future.

Shunkichi Kamiya, President of Kosei, commented: “We started working with RUSAL in the early 1990s and here we are, almost 30 years on this year. We really enjoy the quality, delivery and all the support they provided to us and words cannot describe how much we appreciate their sincere service. RUSAL is the most reliable supplier for us and we highly hope the partnership with RUSAL will continue for many years in the future”

“I am delighted and proud that RUSAL has been named by Kosei as its preferred global supplier. Our long standing relationship with Kosei is testament to our reliability and expertise as a supplier. Over the past 30 years, Kosei and RUSAL have worked together to produce aluminium products of highest quality. We look forward to our continued collaboration”, said Roman Andryushin, RUSAL’s Head of Sales and Marketing.
