Norandal USA Inc. (our wholly-owned subsidiary which includes the rolling mills business) was established in 1979 when Noranda, Inc., purchased the Archer aluminum foil plant in Huntingdon, TN. This expanded Noranda’s operations capabilities to include rolled aluminum products. The formation of Norandal U.S.A. Inc. was just the beginning. In 1989, Norandal U.S.A Inc. acquired National Aluminum’s foil business with plant locations in North Carolina and Arkansas. In 1996, Norandal commissioned the world’s first thin-gauge continuous caster at our Huntingdon, Tennessee plant. And in keeping with our vision, strategy and tenacity to be the world’s leader in our field, Norandal put all its resources to work in constructing a $238 million modern foil plant in Huntingdon, which opened for production in January 2001.
Total combined maximum annual production capacity at our rolling mill facilities is 410 to 495 million pounds, depending on production mix.
