According to  the Aluminum Association, “Since 2013, the aluminum industry announced U.S. plant expansions and planned investments totaling more than $2.2 billion to meet increasing automotive customer needs…[1]”Frequently, the most expeditious means of meeting this increased demand is accomplished through plant modernizations.  Preventative maintenance keeps them operating at top efficiency.
