Aluminum, being lighter than steel, makes for lighter, more fuel efficient vehicles. This allows automakers to meet stricter federal guidelines for fuel efficiency.
Novelis’ production lines make aluminum sheet for use in the Ford F-150 and, now, the Ford F-Series Super Duty line of trucks.
In addition to the finishing lines, Novelis invested in an aluminum scrap recycling facility. Ford returns scrap aluminum, from their automotive manufacturing process, back to Novelis for recycling.
Over the last five years, Novelis has invested over $500 million in the plant to meet the demands of the automotive industry.
