Logan Aluminum Expands to Serve Auto Industry

Can sheet manufacturer Logan Aluminum, Inc., will expand its facility in Logan County, Ky., to serve the automotive industry. The $240 million investment at the facility, which is operated in conjunction with Tri-Arrows Aluminum, will expand the existing recycling/new ingot casting facility to provide additional capabilities and increased capacity in its rolling mills, scalping and pre-heating operations.

The changes will allow the plant to produce heavier gauge material, providing for expansion into other products, including automotive sheet. Logan Aluminum’s ingot casting facility will include a new 280,000-square-foot building on the existing plant site to produce approximately 600 million pounds of cast ingot annually. An additional 68,000-square-foot expansion will accommodate new equipment for aluminum sheet production to support its expanded capabilities for auto and other industries.

“This expansion project will enhance both the capability and capacity at the Logan rolling mill,” says Steve Shiraishi, CEO and president of Tri-Arrows Aluminum. “The investment will significantly strengthen TAA’s position in rolled can sheet markets, providing greater assurance for the reliability of supply to our customers. Additionally, it provides us with greater commercial flexibility by extending the breadth of our product offering to other markets, including automotive.”

The company expects to start producing heavier gauge sheet in 2016 and casting ingots in early 2018.
