It was in 2002 when the operations of Fletcher Aluminum’s distribution in Australia were acquired by Capral Aluminum after selling its Renelt Facility at Greenville to ING Industrial Fund.

In 2003, from the New Zealand Exchange, Capral listed off itself and in the year 2004, the Chief Executive Officer and Managing Director position was given to Mr. Phillip J. Arnall.

Following this were the acquisitions of Crane Aluminum Systems, Smart Aluminum and Crane Aluminum Extrusions from Crane Enfield Metals in the year 2005, and Mr. Phillip J.
