Arconic has announced that it is expanding its production capacity in Blount County, Tennessee.
The aluminium manufacturer is investing more than USD100m to expand production capacity for the production of industrial and can sheet. The project brings 200 new jobs to its Alcoa facility, where it has operated for more than 100 years.
Arconic is a leading provider of aluminium sheet, plate and extruded products for the ground transport, aerospace, packaging and industrial markets. The company is also a supplier to the building and construction market, providing architects and builders with innovative products and systems to create high-performing buildings.
Capacity expansion helps meet demand for industrial and can sheet
“This expansion enables Arconic to help meet the strong customer demand for industrial products and can sheet. As consumers are moving away from plastics for more sustainable products, infinitely recyclable aluminium is the perfect solution. We appreciate the state’s continued support which enables us to create more jobs and advance economic growth in Tennessee, where we’ve been proudly operating for more than 100 years,” said Nandu Srinivasan, president of Arconic Global Rolled Products, North America.
