Gravita India opens aluminium recycling plant in Togo

Gravita India’s subsidiary in Togo, west Africa, has started commercial production of aluminium cast alloys from a new recycling plant. The site has a capacity of around 4 000 tonnes per year.

Gravita Togo SAU expects its operations to yield a revenue of around EUR 6.7 million. The company has been sourcing scrap from Togo for the last three years via a  collection network put in place before reaching this phase. EUR 1.3 million was invested in the new facility.

The Togo plant will cater to the needs of the automotive sector in Asia with key markets said to be China, Japan, Thailand, Korea and Vietnam.

Gravita India owns similar recycling facilities in Tanzania, Senegal, Mozambique and India. This is in alignment with the company’s vision of replicating the recycling business around the world.
