Constellium makes agreement with Boeing

RAVENSWOOD — Constellium and the Boeing Co. have reached a multi-year agreement to supply the company with advanced aluminum rolled products coming mostly from its plant in Ravenswood.

“This new contract reflects the strong relationship established over the years with Boeing,” said Ingrid Joerg, president of Constellium’s aerospace and transportation business unit. “We look forward to continuing to support Boeing in its commercial airplane programs.”

With the agreement, Constellium strengthens its long-standing partnership with Boeing and confirms its leadership position for aerospace aluminum products and solutions, the company said.

Constellium is described as a global leader for aerospace aluminum plate production and a leading provider of pre-machining and custom-designed aerospace materials. It produces advanced proprietary alloys and technologies such as Airware aluminum-lithium alloys.

It is the largest employer in Jackson County with more than 1,100 workers in Ravenswood. The Ravenswood plant is among the world’s largest rolled products facilities and one of the world’s largest cold-rolling mills.

The facility, built in 1957, encompasses 62 acres and produces plate, sheet and coil products for aerospace, defense, transportation, marine and industrial uses.
