Bonnell Plans New Extrusion Line
Bonnell Aluminum will add a new aluminum extrusion line at its AACOA facility in Niles, Mich. The line is expected to start up in second-quarter 2017.
“With continued growing demand from our customers, it is exciting to invest in this additional capacity,” says Brook Hamilton, president and general manager for Bonnell Aluminum. “Our facility in Niles is ideally suited for this project.”
The new line will include a 3,600-ton extrusion press, a 9-inch container, handling systems and ancillary equipment with an estimated annual capacity of 16 million pounds. The $18 million project also includes additional floor space to accommodate future value-added fabrication capacity. “The addition of this new line will provide new and broader product capabilities for our customers,” Hamilton says.
