Huntington Aluminum, a startup aluminum processor announced today that it will establish its initial operation in Huntington's Riverfork Industrial Park, creating up to 43 new jobs by 2013.  Company President Roger Kilty, a native of Huntington, was joined by area elected officials and members of the local and regional economic development team in making the announcement.
 
"I want to thank the State, City, and County leaders and especially Huntington County Economic Development for working so hard to help Huntington Aluminum become a reality," said Kilty.  "Now that I've been through the process, I can better understand why our Community has been successful in supporting the creation of new jobs.  They want me to have a successful business and appreciate how hard I'm working to make this a reality," he added.
 
Mark Wickersham, Executive Director of Huntington County Economic Development, thanked Kilty for choosing to create his business in Huntington and complimented the team of officials who helped win the deal for Huntington.  "This is not the only Community who expressed interest in this project.  It took an aggresive, proactive effort and the Commissioners, Mayor, City Council and regulatory agencies joined the State and demonstrated that we really wanted the Company to locate in the hometown of the entrepreneur who created the business," said Wickersham
 
Since becoming Executive Director of Huntington County Economic Development less than four years ago, the agency's clients have redeveloped over 1.4 million square feet of formerly vacant industrial space with capital investments totaling over $98 million and associated job commitments approaching 1,100 net new jobs.
