JW to further upgrade South Carolina Al plant

US rolling mill JW Aluminum will spend $8.4mn to upgrade equipment at its Goose Creek, South Carolina, facility for handling 84-inch coil to be produced by other additions set to come online later.

JW expects the tension leveling and slitting equipment upgrades to be functional by the end of 2019, in time to handle wider coils from new melting, casting and rolling equipment scheduled to begin operations in 2020.

JW said the new leveling and slitting line will be one of the widest in the industry.

The company is also in the process of expanding rolling, slitting and annealing capabilities at its plants in Russellville, Arkansas; St Louis, Missouri; and Williamsport, Pennsylvania. The work is expected to cost $32.8mn, the company said in September.

JW produces aluminum sheet and foil for use in the heat exchanger, packaging and transportation sectors.
