Rio Tinto Alcan will invest $4.5 million in the Saguenay Lac-Saint-Jean region to install a new small foundry ingot casting unit.

This investment will add 45,000 tonnes of value-added small ingot casting capacity. The collaboration between Rio Tinto Alcan's sales and marketing team, employees and partners will help contribute to the success and development of this new product for its customers and draw from their technical expertise and strong supply network. The new small foundry ingot unit will create 14 jobs. Construction work and other preparations for the new unit are underway, and first production is expected by the third quarter of 2015.
