Kromex was first produced by Alcoa Aluminum Company around 1957. Kromex specialized in kitchenware and serveware. Despite being very popular, Kromex was only offered for a short period of time. Kromex products were known for having clean lines, sleek features, and durability. Kromex was phased out during the early 1960s after Alcoa was bought by Reynold’s Aluminium who shifted their business operations to primarily industrial production.
