Nanshan America Co. Ltd. Building Aluminum Extrusion Plant in Lafayette, Indiana

02/17/2011
Nanshan America Co. Ltd., an aluminum manufacturer under a Chinese parent company, is building an aluminum extrusion facility in Lafayette, Indiana, the Journal & Courier reports. The company will create more than 200 jobs, according to Nanshan America President Lijun Du.

The company, which is owned by Shandong Nanshan Aluminum Co., is investing $100 million in the first phase of the project. It will begin construction immediately and expects to begin production in the second quarter of 2012.

The Indiana Economic Development Corporation has extended Nanshan America up to $1.3 million in performance-based tax credits. The company will also receive $7.6 million in local incentives.

The facility will produce aluminum extrusions for mass transportation and the automotive, distribution, industrial, and electrical industries. Some of its products will be used for high-speed train bodies.

Du graduated from Indiana's Purdue University in 2004.
