Crews from Skanska, USA broke ground on the newest facility at the Audubon Metals Texas Plant project.

Audubon reached an agreement with officials in Corsicana and Navarro County to build the facility there by investing $50 million.

Audubon President Brian Hawkes said that as per the agreement, the 95-acre facility is to be located at Highway 31 Industrial Park in Corsicana, employing approximately 100 personnel.

The Corsicana Audubon plant will begin operating in early 2021.

Audubon Metals LLC, located in Henderson, Ky., selected the city of Corsicana for building its second aluminum scrap sorting and aluminum alloys production facility.
