An aluminum supplier broke ground Monday on a $305 million dollar processing plant in Todd County.
Novelis, an international aluminum supplier, began construction on the 400,000-square-foot facility in Guthrie. The plant will create 125 full-time jobs.
The work involves heat treating and preheating rolled aluminum coils from a Logan Aluminum plant in Russellville. The Guthrie plant will produce automotive-body-panel-grade aluminum sheet. Company leaders anticipate it will be operational by 2020.
The international company employs roughly 11,000 people in 10 countries and produced $10 billion dollars in revenue in the 2017 fiscal year.
