The Aluminium Federation of South Africa (AFSA)

The Aluminium Federation of South Africa (AFSA) is one of the more active aluminium industry associations globally. It has, since 1981, been involved in increasing the awareness and use of aluminium in Southern Africa.

Over and above, AFSA is the voice of and the gateway to the South African Aluminium industry. It offers its members a wide variety of services, the most notable of which are technical information and advice, education, training, skills upgrading, a range of publications, and market industry and business development support.

In line with the AFSA’s vision of “A Growing, Self-sufficient, Sustainable, Competitive, and Innovative SA Aluminium industry,” AFSA is planning to host AFSA International Aluminium Conference and Exhibition, taking place on the 26-27 October 2022 at the Cape Town International Convention Centre (CTICC), in the port city of the southwest coast, on a peninsula beneath the imposing Table Mountain. The central theme of the conference is: “Aluminium – Lightweight, Durable and Sustainable.”

The conference forms part of AFSA’s comprehensive strategic plan of positioning itself in the South African aluminium industry in the short, medium, and long term. Furthermore, AFSA aims to provide networking opportunities, educate, and showcase the South African aluminium industry’s capacity and capabilities as the supplier of aluminium of global stature. At the same time, it is promoting the aluminium industry as a body committed to the environment and sustainable development. This information forms the basis of the key thematic areas of the conference.

The conference is a prime opportunity to grow your network, generate new contacts, cement existing relationships, and develop the aluminium industry through the latest information on the aluminium industry’s technology advancements and competitiveness. In addition to receiving cutting-edge news, challenges, and academic papers on critical topics such as Casting, Fabrication, Surface finishing, Factories of the future, and the South African Aluminium Industry Roadmap from current industry experts, professionals, and academics, the conference will kick-off (25th of October) with an exciting site factory trip to Guala Closures, one of the market leaders in the production of aluminium and non-refillable closures and close-off (28th of October) with scenic wine tour with a wine-pairing experience to some of the finest wine farms in Stellenbosch and Franschhoek.
