SEATTLE (Scrap Monster): Wieland broke ground on the new copper and copper alloy recycling facility located on 79 acres off McConnell Way in Shelby County, Kentucky. The groundbreaking ceremony was attended by the Governor and other elected officials, project partners and neighbouring businesses among others. The facility was initially announced in May last year.

The plant will melt and recycle copper and copper alloy scrap, which in turn will be used in manufacturing semi-finished products across North American region. The recycling facility is considered as Wieland’s first manufacturing facility in the state of Kentucky and is expected to create up to 75 new jobs to the local community. It must be noted that the company’s North American headquarters is located at Louisville, Ky.
