Revstone Industries, LLC acquired Kaiser Aluminum's forged-metals facility in Greenwood, S.C. The plant will operate as part of Revstone's Cast Metals division under the new name Revstone Contech Forgings. The addition brings aluminum forging to Revstone’s aluminum casting operations, improving the company’s ability to meet the auto industry’s demands for lighter-weight parts and components.
With the purchase of Kaiser’s Greenwood assets, Revstone now operates more than 50 parts-manufacturing facilities throughout North America. The acquisition also allows the Lexington, Ky.-based company to offer a wider range of process solutions to its customers. Revstone engineers, designs and manufactures innovative products for the transportation and heavy-truck industries.
