Sapa Extrusions-North America, a provider of extruded aluminum products, has announced plans for a $10 million project to expand casting-pit operations at its Cressona, Pa., plant.
The project will add 100 million pounds of additional annual capacity to Sapa's total casting operations, which include cast houses in several U.S. states and in Toronto, Canada.
Construction on the Cressona expansion will commence this month, with completion and start-up of the facility scheduled for September 2011. The company says it is taking this expansion step to address the tightening market for aluminum billet.
