Alcoa

Davis was at Alcoa when Charles Hall invented the process for producing commercial aluminum. While Davis was head of Alcoa, the company continued to discover new uses for aluminum, most notably in the field of aviation. Davis manufactured and sold aluminum pots and pans when other companies showed no interest in producing household utensils. Davis also worked closely with the U.S. government to ensure that there would be no shortage of aluminum during both World Wars.
