About the location

Alcoa's U.S. portfolio includes Alcoa's corporate headquarters (ACC), Alcoa's Technology Center (ATC),  four smelters, hydroelectric power and a calcined coke plant.  Our Massena facility in New York State, established in 1902, is home to the longest continuously operating smelter in the world. Located on the St. Lawrence River, Massena, NY is the center for commercial, industrial, and manufacturing success in St. Lawrence County. Its four seasons of natural beauty and abundant outdoor recreational activities attract tourists and local residents to enjoy year-round. Massena's caring sense of community, affordable cost of living, and extremely low-cost locally-supplied energy, coupled with four public and private universities nearby, make Massena a great place to call home. From the Thousand Island region to explore by boat, to fishing in the St. Lawrence River, to swimming in three beautiful nearby riverside beaches, to experiencing beautiful foliage and hiking in the Fall, to snowmobiling, and many other winter sports, there's always something fun to see and do. And within a two hour drive (or less) are cosmopolitan and historic Montreal and Ottawa, Canada to the north, and to the south are the tall, beautiful views of Adirondacks and within it is Lake Placid, The Olympic Village.
