European aluminium industry concerned about US anti-dumping investigation targeting certain European countries
European Aluminium profoundly regrets the US anti-dumping investigation into common alloy aluminium sheet from Croatia, Germany, Greece, Italy, Romania, Serbia, Slovenia, Spain and Turkey. European Aluminium contests the injurious dumping and subsidisation allegations and strongly urges the US authorities not to impose additional trade barriers but rather to work together with the European Commission to address subsidised Chinese overcapacity, which is the root cause of the challenges faced by the aluminium industries in Europe and the US.
Novelis Inc. has broken ground on its USD300 million automotive aluminium sheet manufacturing plant in Guthrie, Kentucky. The investment of a 400,000 square foot facility will create some 125 jobs and will be capable of producing 200,000 tonnes a year. Start of production is scheduled for 2020.
