Aleris, Cleveland, has signed a new multi-year contract with Embraer to supply aluminum flat-rolled products for use in the production of all Embraer aircraft. The renewed contract agreement includes the supply of technically advanced alloys and extends the portfolio of products for different applications. The expanded relationship demonstrates how Aleris continues to meet Embraer's high expectations as its primary supplier of aluminum flat rolled products.

"Our continued investment in growing our technical capabilities has enabled us to further expand our relationship with Embraer, and we look forward to working with them to achieve their aircraft manufacturing and design goals," Sean Stack, Aleris chairman and CEO said. "With a world class aerospace aluminum plate facility in Asia Pacific, we are also uniquely positioned to help them meet aerospace demand in the region which is projected to experience the most significant growth."

The contract includes the supply of material from the company's facilities in Koblenz, Germany, and Zhenjiang, China, the latter of which represents a greenfield project for Aleris which opened in 2013.
