"We are very excited about the new partnership with Investcorp," said Oscar Groomes, chief executive officer of Almatis. "They have demonstrated a strong understanding of our business and markets. With their resources and global experience, we will be able to continue investing strongly in the specialty alumina markets and making further improvements in our global sales and production network."
