RAVENSWOOD, W.Va. — A large aluminum fabrication plant in Jackson County received good news Thursday.
Constellium announced that they have been awarded a multi-year agreement with aerospace manufacturer Boeing to support the company’s leading commercial airplane programs. The agreement allows Constellium to increase both the scope and range of products it supplies.
This announcement comes on the same day Texas-based Carbonyx announced plans to build a $250 million plant in Jackson County. The company will initially hire around 60 workers with more hires possible in the future.
Under this agreement, Constellium will supply Boeing’s aluminum products for airframes utilizing Constellium’s current and advanced-generation aluminum alloys. The products will be supplied from Constellium’s two major manufacturing sites in Ravenswood and in Issoire, France.
“This agreement further strengthens the solid partnership that Constellium and Boeing have built over the past 25 years,” explained Pierre Vareille, CEO of Constellium in a release. “We look forward to increasing our collaborative efforts to drive value for Boeing and to address the economic and technical challenges of future programs.”
Constellium’s technology portfolio illustrates its capacity to leverage the potential of aluminum solutions for the aerospace industry.
