The facility has a current capacity for finished products of 950 million pounds per year. Its sheet products are used in the manufacture of beverage cans, ends, tabs, food containers and other products including trailer roof and fin stock.
The 74 acre Element 13 complex is where used beverage cans are melted and alloyed in preparation for being recast into aluminum ingots. The facility was built by Reynolds Metals in 1969 and expanded in 2011 by Wise Metals. The main operations at the plant are comprised of nine furnaces with a capacity to melt more than 600 million pounds of scrap per year.
