Hydro to add operations in Phoenix

Linthicum, Md., Aug. 3, 2012— Hydro is making adjustments to the structure of its aluminum extrusion network in the United States. The company has announced it will bring new fabrication activities to its plant in Arizona.
 
Hydro announced in January that it had expanded its aluminum fabrication services in the U.S. with new operations, technical competence and increased customer support.
 
At its plant in Phoenix, the company has added 60,000 square feet of manufacturing space dedicated to fabrication, including CNC machining and product assembly, and has doubled its number of engineers for customer and operational support.
 
Hydro employs over 200 people in Phoenix, handling extrusion, drawn tube and aluminum remelt activities. The integration of the new operations is underway.
 
With the addition of this new fabrication center, Hydro will let a previous agreement with The Offshore Group expire at the end of this year. The agreement covers metal fabrication work that Hydro has been contracting from a facility in Guaymas, Mexico.
