GFG Alliance’s global aluminium division ALVANCE Aluminium Group announced the appointment of Guillaume de Goÿs as its new Chief Operating Officer to drive the Group’s expansion and synergies across its upstream and downstream activities. Guillaume is one of the most experienced figures in the French aluminium sector. He has been the Managing Director of Aluminium Dunkerque, Europe’s largest aluminium producer, since 2016 and has also held senior roles at Carbone Savoie, Rio Tinto Alcan and Michelin in international postings in countries including Cameroon, Poland, the US and Thailand.

Guillaume will oversee all of its operations from its primary upstream businesses, including Aluminium Dunkerque and the UK’s only remaining aluminium smelter at Fort William in Scotland, to its downstream operations at ALVANCE Wheels France, France’s only manufacturer of aluminium wheels at Chateauroux, and engine cast part producers ALVANCE Aluminium Technologies Poitou and ALVANCE Cast Products Poitou. ALVANCE is also working towards the completion of its purchase of Belgium’s 1,200 worker Duffel aluminium rolling facilities near Brussels, which was recently approved by the European Commission.
