Region 8 company expanding thanks to investment

NEW MADRID COUNTY, MO (KAIT) – Governor Jay Nixon announced on Friday that Noranda Aluminum will expand thanks to a $38 million investment.

Gov. Nixon also announced a $1 million Energy Effic.ent Pilot Grant to construct a system for producing aluminum more efficiently and with less energy use.

The expansion was originally announced in 2008, but due to the economic recession and the January 2009 Ice Storm the expansion was delayed.
