Matalco Plans New Aluminum Manufacturing Plant

Matalco (Brampton, Ontario) plans to build a 110,000-square-foot aluminum billet manufacturing facility in Wisconsin Rapids, Wis., investing $80 million, according to trade and media reports.

Matalco sister company Triple M Metal (Brampton) will build a scrap-reprocessing facility at the Wisconsin site. With 80 full-time workers, the new facility will produce more than 230 million pounds a year of aluminum billet, using mostly recycled material, Matalco says. Pending city approval, Matalco will break ground this spring and open the facility by mid-2020. Visit or
