Novelis, Inc., hosted a ribbon cutting celebration on 15th April to commemorate a $4.5 million investment at its facility in Warren, Ohio.

The investment, announced in Nov. 2017, provides greater versatility for pretreatments, improves operational efficiency and reduces costs over time.

“It is an exciting day for our facility as we complete this upgrade,” said Paul Nelson, Plant Manager. “We are committed to shaping a sustainable world together, and this investment allows us to sustain our business here in Warren for many years to come.”

Mayor William “Doug” Franklin and representatives from the offices of Senator Sherrod Brown and Senator Rob Portman attended the celebration.

The Warren facility has 75 employees dedicated to applying coating to aluminium beverage cans and produces enough aluminium for more than one billion beverage can lids each month. A leader in the aluminium beverage can sheet market, Novelis supplies some of the world’s most recognisable brands, including Coca-Cola, AB InBev and PepsiCo.
