Constellium's Neuf-Brisach Facility Upgrades its Rolling Mill for the Production of Sustainable Aluminium Automotive Applications
Constellium is investing to upgrade its Neuf-Brisach plant’s aluminium rolling mill, supported by a grant from the French investment program France 2030.
This upgrade will allow the Neuf-Brisach plant to cater to the increasing demand for aluminium automotive components, including battery enclosures for electric vehicles (EVs). These products will request new alloys tolerant to a higher proportion of recycled content and providing improved lightweight design.
"We are thrilled to announce this strategic investment in our Neuf-Brisach facility and to contribute to the lightweighting, electrification and circularity of the automotive industry,” said Willem Loue, Neuf-Brisach’s Plant Manager. “This initiative underscores our dedication to meeting our automotive customers’ needs and contributing to more sustainable mobility.”
The Neuf-Brisach facility, established in 1967, is one of Constellium's largest plants with approximately 1,500 employees and a production capacity of 450,000 metric tons annually. Located in Europe's industrial heartland, the facility primarily serves the packaging and automotive markets.
