“For 75 years, the employees of Novelis Kingston have built a legacy of leadership in the production of high quality aluminium material for our customers,” said Jacob Czyz, Plant Manager of Novelis Kingston. “I am honoured to lead our Kingston plant at this memorable time and know that we have a bright future ahead.”

In honour of reaching this milestone, Novelis will host a series of celebratory events in Kingston for past and present employees, local residents and government officials. The city of Kingston has officially proclaimed September 12-19 as “Novelis Kingston Works Week.”
