Nanshan America Puts Plant in Lafayette, IN
Nanshan America Co. Ltd. has announced it will build an aluminum extrusion plant in Lafayette, IN on land in the Park 350 industrial park near Veterans Memorial Parkway and U.S. 52.
“We expect over 200 new jobs in the next two to three years,” said Nanshan America president Lijun Du during an invitation-only announcement at Purdue University, jconline.com reports. “We’ve been studying the U.S. market, the largest in the world, for years. To establish this facility in the Midwest, with the best equipment from Europe and America and an elite American management team and work force, will make us among the leaders in the global aluminum industry.”
The new facility will be named Nanshan America Advanced Aluminum Technologies, and the new jobs will pay an average of $15.27 an hour, plus benefits.
Nanshan’s U.S. headquarters is in Chicago; its parent company is based in China. Du, a Purdue graduate, met Gov. Mitch Daniels in Shanghai during an Indiana trade mission to Asia last November.
