Kentucky Officials and Aleris Executives Comment on Automotive Expansion

Aleris executives and Kentucky government officials gathered at the construction site on Oct. 29, 2014, to mark the groundbreaking of the company’s  $350 million investment to equip the facility with additional heat treatment and finishing capabilities to produce wide aluminum auto body sheet for the automotive industry.  The investment positions Aleris to meet anticipated significant growth in North American automotive demand as the industry pursues broader aluminum use for the production of lighter, more fuel-efficient vehicles. Aleris is currently a leading supplier to the European premium auto industry, which has led the transition to aluminum driven by tighter emissions standards.
