Organiser

GDA Logo

As the representative of the aluminium industry, GDA strives to maintain an open dialogue with the general public in order that customers and consumers have a more transparent view and better understanding of aluminium and the products of its member companies. To this end there is a continual exchange of experience and ideas within the association; this ensures that the interests of all member companies are represented effectively.

GDA and its specialist trade associations have made it their job to represent the common interests of all of their members and thus the whole sector in all areas of the economy relating to aluminium. This involves the collection and processing of market information and planned legislation at national and international level. In addition, the association carries out media and public relations work for its member companies.
