Alcoa Makes Adjustments in Primary Aluminum Production
PITTSBURGH--November 4, 1998--
Alcoa will reduce primary aluminum production at Eastalco Works in
Frederick, Maryland, by 30,000 metric tons a year (mtpy). The adjustment
is being made at the 174,000-mtpy facility as former Alumax facilities
are integrated into the Alcoa worldwide system. Approximately 150
salaried and hourly employees will be affected by the action. Eastalco
is a joint venture between Alcoa and a Japanese consortium led by Mitsui
& Co. Ltd. Alcoa operates Eastalco.
There will be no change in Alcoa's total primary aluminum output as
offsetting increases at other plants will keep Alcoa's total primary
aluminum production at its current level. Alcoa has had 450,000 mtpy of
primary aluminum capacity idled since 1994.
Alcoa is the world's largest producer of aluminum and alumina. It has
250 operating locations in 30 countries.
