Managing Director and Founder, AZ Global Consulting

Paul Adkins, Founder and Managing Director of specialist consulting firm AZ China Ltd, has had over 30 years’ experience in the aluminium industry, including 13 years at Alcoa, 4 years at Tomago Aluminium and 3 years at Alcan Australia. Paul did his undergraduate studies at Deakin University in Australia and attained his MBA with Merit from the Newcastle Graduate School of Management in Australia. From 2001, he was Raw Materials Manager at Tomago Aluminium, before being seconded to Alcan early 2005 to set up their Global Sourcing office in Beijing China. Paul was also involved in Alcan’s FECRI project, which was aimed at significantly reducing the cost of building new aluminum smelters. On completion of that assignment, Paul chose to remain in China and to establish his own business. Paul has been Managing Director of AZ China Limited since 2007. AZ China is a specialist consulting company, with focus on the global and Chinese aluminium industry. AZ China publishes multi-client reports on the market trends and outlook, as well as providing consulting services to individual clients. AZ China has been holding conferences since 2008. As the aluminum and raw materials markets have evolved, so has Paul’s company, which in 2022 changed its name to AZ Global Consulting Limited.

What Do We Publish?

We publish reports and analyses on the aluminium market and all the various raw materials on a monthly, weekly and almost daily basis. We also look at broader subjects such as how the world economy might affect the sector, and how government policies impact the industry. We also take pride in our China office and remain the only analysts who write on the Chinese market from inside China yet with a Western, smelter point of view.
