Alcoa Celebrates Expansion

Posted: Updated:

 

Alcoa officials are celebrating an expansion that's expected to bring hundreds of jobs to the QCA.

"These jobs add high quality good paying jobs to the Quad Cities, something we're very proud of," Iowa Governor Terry Branstad said.
     
The Governor was in attendance for the ribbon cutting. Alcoa invested $300-million into an expansion at its Riverdale plant.
    
Officials say it was necessary to help meet the demand of automotive industries that want to make cars lighter in weight and more fuel efficient.
     
The project created 150 new jobs.
