Novelis kicks off construction on $2.5 billion Alabama aluminum mill

BAY MINETTE, Alabama — Site work is under way on one of Alabama’s most prominent construction projects — a $2.5 billion aluminum mill being built by Atlanta-based Novelis in Baldwin County that is the first facility of its kind  constructed in the U.S. for 40 years.

Crews are engaged in earthwork, excavation and piling at the site in the 3,000-acre South Alabama Mega Site in Bay Minette. Over the next three months, Novelis will construct two new roadways on the site and expand the utility infrastructure necessary to begin building construction.

Commissioning of the facility, which will employ 1,000 people at full production, is scheduled for mid-2025.
