Companhia Brasileira de Aluminio CBA is the largest aluminium producer in Brazil having a total annual production of around 480,000 tonnes.
It is headquartered in the city of São Paulo.
Established on June 4, 1955, Companhia Brasileira de Aluminio was the first aluminium plant in Brazil producing 4.000 tonnes/year but after fifty years in 2005 the company had a producing capacity of 400,000 tonnes/year.
Companhia Brasileira de Aluminio has some bauxite mines in Poços de Caldas.

There is another mine Miraí due for opening in 2007 which alone will produce 3 million tonnes of bauxite per year.
