After its first office (Pechiney World Trade) opened in 1921 in New York, USA, the company grew and decided to launch one also in Tokyo, Japan, in 1973. With the acquisition of the French company Pechiney by Alcan in 2004, the organization became Alcan International Network (AIN). AIN is now a sales and services network belonging to Alcan's Engineered Products (Alcan EP).
