Aluminum Company of Canada Limited (Alcan) was an integrated producer of aluminum products.
The Foil Mill produced aluminum foil of different widths for a variety of different end uses.
Space limitations required that a limited number of standard widths of aluminum foil be carried in stock from which customers’ orders were slit.
Low turnover on some standard widths and large scrap losses occurred when filling customers’ orders of certain widths.
