Kaiser Aluminum Relocates-Plans Franklin, Tennessee, Headquarters

American aluminum producer Kaiser Aluminum will relocate its corporate headquarters from California to Franklin, Tennessee. The project is expected to create 80 jobs.

As part of the relocation, the company will invest approximately $3 million as it transitions and expands corporate functions to its new office space located at 1550 W. McEwen Drive.

“Kaiser Aluminum has been a long-term employer in Tennessee through our Tennalum facility in Jackson and more recently with our new sales office in Knoxville. We look forward to expanding our presence in Tennessee as we relocate and transition our corporate headquarters to Franklin. Williamson County provides the benefit of a corporate friendly business environment and access to a highly talented workforce that fits well with Kaiser Aluminum’s corporate value of being a preferred employer and a great place to work. We thank the Economic and Community Development team for their commitment and support,” President and CEO of Kaiser Aluminum Corporation Keith A. Harvey said.

Kaiser Aluminum, a $1.8 billion, publicly traded corporation, is a leading producer of semi-fabricated specialty aluminum products, serving customers worldwide with highly engineered solutions for aerospace and high-strength, packaging, general engineering, custom automotive and other industrial applications.

“When a company chooses to relocate its headquarters and C-suite executives to Tennessee, it speaks volumes to our state’s pro-business climate and highly skilled workforce. We appreciate Kaiser Aluminum for bringing its global corporate headquarters to Franklin from California, which will provide support to its manufacturing operations across North America, including its Jackson, Tennessee location,” noted TNECD Commissioner Bob Rolfe.
