The company’s goal is to lead the generational shift in materials science that is currently underway.

Braidy purchases 204 acres at EastPark, expects to break ground in spring 2018
Braidy Industries finalized the purchase of 204 acres of industrial park land in 2017, securing the way to construct a $1.3 billion aluminum rolling mill. In addition to the land purchase, Braidy also acquired a 110,000-square-foot spec building at EastPark. Ashland Alliance President and CEO said Braidy “brings a lot to the table” and its presence in EastPark will likely spur more industry to northeastern Kentucky. “We’re going to have an anchor that is going to attract additional business to this region,” he said. “Braidy has a lot of tenticles.”
