ABOUT CONSOLIDATED ALLOYS
Consolidated Alloys origins date back to the 1930’s when as Glover & Goode it was a base metal smelter and refiner based in Melbourne, Australia. Taken over by G.J.Wallace, it flourished in tin and lead alloy manufacturing and was eventually to become part of the U.S. based Engelhard Industries and became Engelhard Wallace Pty. Ltd. in the 1950’s.
In 1970 Engelhard Wallace was acquired by its current owners, Amalgamated Metal Corporation PLC (AMC) and became known as Consolidated Alloys, a division of C.A.Group Australasia Pty. Ltd which it still remains today.
