Arconic will invest $14 million at its Texarkana, Texas, facility to restart previously idled equipment. The facility will provide rolled aluminum sheet to make industrial products.The equipment is expected to be operational by January 2019.
“This investment is a great opportunity to capture near-term opportunities in high-growth markets,” said Tim Myers, president of Arconic’s Global Rolled Products and Transportation and Construction Solutions businesses. “By restarting Texarkana’s existing equipment, we are able to quickly ramp up to provide additional value-add products for our customers.”
In September of 2015, Arconic restarted two casting pits in the Texarkana casthouse
that had been idled since 2009 to meet demands in the automotive industry.
