Our expertise

AZ China Limited was established in 2006. Our diverse team is comprised of consulting and industry experts with over 40 years of experience. Although we have a strong aluminium background, we also have expertise in a broad range of sectors, with skills ranging from chemical engineering to economics.

Targeted, in-depth market analysis

We publish reports and analyses on the aluminium market and all the various raw materials, as well as looking at broader subjects such as how China’s economy might affect the sector, and how Chinese government policy impacts the industry. We are the only analysts who write on the Chinese market from inside China yet with a Western, smelter point of view.

Wide range of consulting services

We specialize in helping Western companies who are interested in entering the Chinese market. We also provide specialist-sourcing advice to manufacturers and secondary industry purchasing managers who are looking for reliable, high-quality Chinese suppliers.
