About 125 new jobs are coming to Guthrie as Novelis has announced plans to build an approximately $300 million automotive aluminum sheet manufacturing facility.
The greenfield facility, with an annual nameplate capacity of 200,000 metric tons, will include heat treatment and pre-treatment lines, which prepare aluminum for use in vehicle parts such as body-in-white, hoods, doors, lift gates and fenders.
A news release says the company expects to break ground in early spring and create approximately 125 jobs at the new facility, which is slated to open on US 79 near the railroad bridge in 2020.
Guthrie Mayor Scott Marshall says it’s big news for the south Todd County city.
He praised the various agencies that came together to help make the announcement possible.
The new facility will be in close proximity to Logan Aluminum Inc., a Novelis joint venture in Russellville, and several nearby automotive manufacturing plants.
