It expands upon the company’s recent growth in Oswego to meet the increased demand for aluminum automotive sheet in North America. Including this recycling center, over the past five years, Novelis has invested more than $400 million in Oswego and hired more than 430 new employees, with around 250 additional jobs planned by the year 2020.
The recycling investment includes a new 81,000 square-foot building capable of processing, sorting and storing automotive scrap aluminum. Additional investments were made in infrastructure improvements such as road and parking upgrades to handle increased truck traffic.
The new recycling facility features best-in-class scrap recovery and conversion technology. Designed specifically to meet the needs of North American automakers, the recycling center will enable Novelis to process as much as 10,000 metric tons (20 million lbs) of recycled scrap per month.
