Fort car wheels plant could be rolling by 2020 says boss

BOSSES of the multi-national giant behind plans for an aluminium car wheel factory in Fort William say they see no major obstacles to the plant being up and running by 2020.

That was the message from the first of several public consultation events in Fort William last week.

GFG Alliance wants to build the factory as an expansion of its £330million acquisition last year of the former Rio Tinto smelter at Fort William. The wheels plant would employ 400 people. Speaking to the Lochaber Times, Brian King, managing director of GFG Alliance’s sub- sidiary Liberty British Aluminium, said he hoped a planning application could be submitted as early as the end of this month.
