JW Aluminum was founded in Mt. Holly, South Carolina in 1979 as Jim Walter Metals—a single-facility operation with about 10 employees. Back then we exclusively produced cast aluminum coils for use in home building and construction applications. From these humble beginnings, JW Aluminum has grown to become The Leading Aluminum Rolled Products Company in the World with one of the most diverse product lines in the aluminum industry.
With four state-of-the-art aluminum mills throughout the country, we produce a wide range of top-quality products, including:
We're also one of the largest producers of fin stock in the U.S., as well as a leader in pre-coated fin stock and venetian blind stock.
Even with a list of satisfied customers around the globe—and a reputation for excellent service and quality—JW Aluminum remains committed to constant improvement through innovation, efficiency and customer service.
JW Aluminum is owned by Wellspring Capital Management, a leading middle-market private equity firm that manages more than $3 billion of private equity capital. Wellspring partners with JW Aluminum to bring experience and value creation through strategic initiatives, operating improvements and add-on acquisitions. Functioning as a strategic partner, Wellspring provides top-line support, financial expertise, and access to critical resources that help JW Aluminum to bring even more value to our customers.
