To keep pace with increased demand, Constellium has doubled manufacturing capacity at its facility in Van Buren, Michigan, USA and enhanced advanced prototyping and development capabilities.

"We are delighted to become one of Ford's largest suppliers of high-strength aluminium structural parts for the groundbreaking F-150 and see this as an important milestone in the expansion of our global automotive structures business," said Paul Warton, President of Constellium's Automotive Structures and Industry business unit.

"We believe that the automotive industry demand for aluminium will continue to grow as automakers seek to reduce vehicle weight and improve fuel efficiency. With our innovative and value-added solutions and the expansion of our component manufacturing capabilities in the United States, Europe and China, Constellium is strongly positioned to help meet that demand worldwide."
