Alcoa plans to invest approximately $200 million in a major expansion of the facility, which includes a state-of-the art hot rolling mill and related equipment. Alcoa anticipates having the mill commissioned by 2008.

The new joint venture will serve customers in China and throughout Asia in multiple markets with high quality aluminum fabricated products, including sheet, plate and foil.

'This new entity underscores Alcoa's long term commitment to grow in China, one of the fastest growing economies in the world, and expands our presence in Asia. We are bullish about the success of this venture, as we will be managing a facility that produces high value products in which Alcoa has established knowledge and customers worldwide,' said Alcoa Chairman and CEO Alain Belda.
