Golden Triangle pressures aluminum company on proposed plant

american specialty alloys copyAmerican Specialty Alloys officials have been informed that 826 acres in the Golden Triangle Industrial Park that had been reserved for the company’s planned $1.2 billion aluminum plant are now open to other potential projects, according to the Columbus Dispatch.


Joe Max Higgins, chief executive of the Golden Triangle Development LINK, said the decision was made about two weeks ago after the company failed to provide assurances requested by LINK officials, the Dispatch reported.
The land had been reserved for American Specialty  for nearly a year.
George Riel, chief marketing officer for the company, was quoted as saying: “We’ll be making a public comment on the site in the next two to three weeks. The project is progressing nicely and is on track.”
