Logan Aluminum Inc., in conjunction with Tri Arrows Aluminum, broke ground on a $240 million expansion project in Russellville, Ky. The expansion, which will create approximately 190 new employment opportunities, includes an aluminum recycling and ingot casting facility along with numerous projects to provide expanded capabilities and increased capacity at the company’s rolling mills.

The ingot casting facility includes a new 280,000-square-foot building on the existing plant site. It will produce approximately 600 million pounds of cast ingot annually for processing. Recycled aluminum scrap will be the main input material for the facility. Expansion projects and enhancements on the current rolling mills will provide the capability of producing heavier-gauge material to meet customer requirements and expand Logan Aluminum’s product range to serve the automotive industry. These enhancements will increase the existing structure an additional 68,000 square feet.

A pending $50 million investment would grow Logan’s current production of rolled sheet for beverage cans. Logan Aluminum is jointly owned by Tri Arrows Aluminum and Novelis Aluminum Inc.
