Alcoa to Build Cast Aluminum Rod Facility

CRESSONA, PA.--November 29, 2000-- Alcoa Inc. will expand into the cast aluminum rod market by building a new production facility in early 2001, located close to the main consumer markets in the southern part of the US. The plant will be in production within twelve months, according to Alcoa Engineered Products President Ronee Hagen.

Hagen said that the facility will have the capability to produce cast rod in sizes tailored to forged and impact-extruded applications in the automotive, industrial, and consumer markets. The cast rod product will enhance current availability of standard and specialty rod and bar, standard and custom profiles, seamless and structural pipe and tube and drawn seamless tube.

Alcoa Engineered Products is a component of Alcoa's North American Extrusions, one of Alcoa's business units. Alcoa is the world's largest producer of aluminum and is active in all major segments of the industry.
