Aleris opens auto body sheet mill

November 17, 2017 - Aleris opened its aluminum automotive body sheet production facility Nov. 18 in Lewisport, Kentucky. The $400 million mill positions Aleris to meet growth in North American automotive demand as the industry pursues broader aluminum use for the production of lighweight, more fuel-efficient vehicles. The mill has begun shipping automotive products from Lewisport to customers.

Lewisport’s expansion includes a new wide cold mill and two continuous annealing lines.  Including Lewisport, Aleris has nine rolled aluminum products facilities in North America, the majority of which serve building & construction, truck-trailer, and metal distribution customers.
