American Specialty Alloys has found a home for its aluminum mill in Central Louisiana, where the $1.2 billion mill is expected to employ at least 650 employees to manufacture aluminum automobile bodies.
The area of land chosen for the factory is approximately 1,200 acres; the factory itself will be 1.4 million square-feet and will generate over 600,000 tons of aluminum sheeting and plating per year. The plant is slated to open in 2016.
For months, the automobile industry has been heading in the direction of aluminum bodies and car parts; the new American Specialty plant will not only bolster the automobile industry’s efforts, but also bolster Louisiana’s economy by amplifying job growth. This new facility will fill the gap of expected higher demand of aluminum auto body sheet alloys.
