Aleris International is a producer of aluminum rolled and extruded products, recycled aluminum, and specification aluminum alloy manufacturing. Its headquarters are in Beachwood, Ohio, a suburb of Cleveland, and it has access to 40 production facilities across the world.

Aleris was formed in 2004 through the merger of Commonwealth Industries, Inc. and IMCO Recycling Inc.

In February 2009, the US Justice Department filed suit against Aleris alleging that 15 of its plants had violated the Clean Air Act by emission of pollutants. In August 2009, Aleris settled the suit with the government, and agreed to pay a $4.6 million fine and spend an additional $4.2 million on new pollution controls at its plants.

Aleris filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy on . It announced plans in May 2010 to exit bankruptcy as a privately-held company owned by investment funds of Apollo Management, Oaktree Capital Management, and Sankaty Advisors.

Aleris filed with the SEC to raise up to $100 million in an IPO in April 2011.
