ALEXANDRIA, La. — Rapides Parish officials want to do their part to facilitate location of the American Specialty Alloys plant to a site near Pineville.
The Town Talk reports police jurors on Monday authorized President Richard Billings to work with grant consultants, engineers, bond attorneys and special legal counsel to assist ASA in meeting infrastructure needs.
The $2.4 billion plant, which will manufacture aluminum alloy for the automotive and aerospace industries, will be built at the former International Paper mill site near Pineville. It is expected to employ more than 1,400 people.
Construction is expected to be completed in 2020.
Billings says the help would be for infrastructure needs including but not limited to roads, water, sewer, rail and port access which may require the creation of special districts.
