JW Aluminum started the expansion of its Mount Holly flat-rolled aluminum plant in Goose Creek, S.C. The project includes a 220,000-square-foot building and the installation of state-of-the-art equipment utilizing green technology, ultimately resulting in 175 million pounds of new capacity. As part of the expansion, JW Aluminum is adding 50 new jobs to its workforce and is currently recruiting skilled operators, industrial and electrical technicians, maintenance mechanics and engineers.

JW Aluminum manufactures specialty flat-rolled aluminum products including honeycomb foil for the aerospace industry. The project, which represents the company’s most significant capital investment in domestic technologies and capabilities since 2001, is expected to be complete in early 2020.
