We are pleased to announce that Novelis has completed its acquisition of Aleris, a global supplier of rolled aluminum products, and we will now move forward as one company. Bringing together our two world-class manufacturing companies allows us to take our industry to new heights and deliver more value to our customers, our employees and the communities where we live and work.

This transaction is an important next step in achieving Novelis’ goal to make aluminum the preferred material of choice for our customers and to meet what we project to be growing demand for aluminum. As the leading producer of flat-rolled aluminum products and the world’s largest recycler of aluminum, we are investing in advanced capabilities and focusing on creating more innovative and diverse aluminum products.

As we begin the process of integrating our two companies, we would like to assure our valued customers that we expect to maintain business as usual, and as we begin serving more end-markets, we remain wholly committed to the pursuit of operational excellence, safety and reliability.

For our employees, we are focused on providing a clear path forward for their growth, and as one company, we offer the best and most stable future for our combined workforce. We are committed to keeping high-paying, technical manufacturing jobs in the region. We also remain committed to our purpose of shaping a sustainable world together, by raising the bar for sustainability in the aluminum industry. As one company, we’re instituting more closed-loop recycling systems, reducing our dependence on primary aluminum, and creating a more efficient sustainable business model.

This is a truly transformational moment in the history of Novelis and an important step forward in advancing sustainable aluminum solutions on a global scale.
