Huntington Aluminum Ribbon Cutting
May 18, 2015
The Huntington County Economic Development Team had the honor of joining Roger Kilty and the Huntington Aluminum Team in officially cutting the ribbon on their new 43,000 square foot expansion at Huntington's Riverfork Industrial Park. Huntington Aluminum was founded by Kilty in 2011. The company now employs 58 people and invested over $3,200,000.00 in the expansion and expects to create 43 additional jobs by the end of 2018.
The Company suffered a devastating fire in 2014, destroying their 12,000 square foot warehouse. The new building replaces the warehouse and adds nearly 30,000 square feet of additional manufacturing capacity.
Huntington Aluminum melts recycled aluminum and molds the metal into both ingots and sows.
"This project is a true collaboration of everyone in the economic development community," said Mark Wickersham, executive director of the Huntington County Economic Development Corporation. "The County Commissioners and the City worked hard to help and genuinely appreciated that Roger could have moved his company to any city in the U.S.," he added. "We are all very proud of his team and pleased that he chose Huntington," Wickersham concluded.
