Constellium sites new facility, 150 manufacturing jobs in Bartow County
ATLANTA — Constellium, a Dutch metals manufacturing company, will open a facility in Bartow County. The project is expected to create 150 jobs with an overall investment of $32 million.
Constellium develops aluminum products for a broad scope of markets and applications, including aerospace, automotive and packaging.
The company will build an 84,000-square-foot facility on a 20-acre tract in the Highlands 75 Industrial Park north of Cartersville. Constellium expects to begin construction in early 2016 and begin manufacturing operations in 2017. The planned greenfield facility may be expanded up to 220,000 square feet to adapt to customers’ supply needs in the future.
“The new Georgia plant demonstrates Constellium’s commitment to work in partnership with automakers in North America and to be near their assembly plants,” said Paul Warton, president of Constellium’s automotive structures and industry business unit. “This expansion of our footprint in the Southeast United States will allow us to better serve our automotive customers and to respond the industry’s growing demand for aluminium.”
Constellium operates more than 20 manufacturing sites in North America, Europe and Asia. The company’s world-class technology center located in Voreppe, France, is the origin of its advanced aluminum solutions.
“Georgia has a strong business climate and an advanced technical education network to provide a skilled workforce for our operations,” said Eric Krepps, vice President and general manager of Constellium Automotive Structures North America. “We are grateful for the warm welcome we have received from the State of Georgia, Bartow County and a number of partners to help achieve our business goals .”
