  • Description

    THE ALUCONGO FACTORY IN CONGO-KINSHASA IS NOW MAKING A WIDE VARIETY OF ALUMINIUM HOUSEHOLD GOODS BOTH FOR EXPORT AND FOR THE INTERNAL MARKET.

    THE FACTORY IS DESIGNED TO MEET AN INCREASING DEMAND FOR LIGHT WEIGHT, STRONG AND RUST PROOF COOKING UTENSILS THAT WILL NOT TAINT FOOD.

    THE PROCESS BEGINS WITH ALUMINIUM SHEETS, WHICH THE TECHNICIANS OF THE FACTORY SHAPE INTO COOKING POTS AND ALUMINIUM DISHES. THE GOODS ARE THEN TREATED SO THAT THEY HAVE A PERMANENT POLISH. THE LIDS ARE MADE THE SAME WAY. LATER THEY ARE PIERCED SO THAT THE HANDLES CAN BE FITTED ON. THE FACTORY IS ALSO TURNING OUT MUGS ON A PRODUCTION LINE.

    MOULTEN ALUMINIUM IS COOLED IN MOULDS TO MAKE ARTICLES LIKE FORKS AND SPOONS. BY THIS PROCESS IT ALSO PRODUCES BUCKETS FOR COLLECTING RAW RUBBER.
