Constellium to Build Manufacturing Facility in Georgia
Constellium will construct a new manufacturing facility in Bartow County, Ga., in response to growing demand for its aluminum automotive structures in North America. The Amsterdam-based company will invest $20 million for the project, and developer Seefried Properties will provide an additional $12 million. Construction of the 84,000-square-foot greenfield facility will begin in early 2016, with start of production scheduled in 2017. Constellium expects to create approximately 150 high-tech manufacturing jobs at the site by 2019. According to the company, the expansion will allow it to respond to the industry’s growing demand for aluminum structural parts to lighten vehicles, improve fuel economy and reduce environmental impact.
