Austin Mooney, the new managing director of the Clarendon-based Jamalco, is promising to make the alumina plant more competitive.

Mooney, who has almost 35 years’ experience in the bauxite/alumina industry, said the company will also recommit to building better partnerships with its communities and stakeholders.

According to him, Jamalco is poised for growth but this can only be achieved with the input of all employees and other stakeholders.

He says the company has all the ingredients to surpass its previous achievements and continue to be the leader of the industry. 

Mooney also says he will retain the business systems from Alcoa and empower the employees at all levels to use their knowledge and expertise to improve the business.

According to him, Jamalco will also lend greater focus to stabilising production, maximising bauxite reserves, improving the efficiency of its operations and continuing to export quality alumina.
