Constellium, a full-service supplier of rolled and extruded aluminum solutions for the automotive market, has been named Alabama’s Large Manufacturer of the Year.
Created by the Business Council of Alabama and the Alabama Technology Network, the award recognizes the state’s manufacturing enterprises that demonstrate superior performance in customer focus, employee commitment, operating excellence, continuous improvement, profitable growth and investment in training and retraining employees.
“This recognition is a result of our employees’ hard work and our steadfast commitment to excellence, which has allowed us to build strong relationships with our customers, suppliers and community. We look forward to continuing to grow in Alabama,” said Chris Smith, president of Constellium’s Muscle Shoals, Alabama and Bowling Green, Kentucky plants.
The Muscle Shoals site is one of the company’s largest, with more than 1,200 employees. With the widest strip mill in the U.S., the plant produces aluminum can sheet and auto body sheet substrate. Known as Element 13, Muscle Shoals’ recycling facility is one of the largest recyclers of used aluminum cans in the world and has the capacity to recycle the equivalent of 20 billion cans per year.
Overall, Constellium has 28 production facilities, technology centers and offices worldwide, with approximately 13,000 employees. Earlier this year, the company was named to Automotive News’ annual listing of top suppliers for a second consecutive year.
