Braidy Industries, aluminum mill

Braidy Industries was created by Craig T. Bouchard to lead a national transformation in the use of efficient, eco-friendly aluminum alloys that are also lighter and stronger. The company’s goal is to lead the generational shift in materials science that is currently underway. With a board of directors that includes acknowledged experts in business, research, development, and materials science, Braidy Industries is ideally positioned to take advantage of the rapidly growing market for aluminum in the automotive and aerospace industries.

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.”

Build Ready Certified – Lot 22

Proactive preparation allows for quick decision site selection

EastPark’s Lot 22 site is a certified Build-Ready site, allowing companies the opportunity to bypass much of the red tape required when establishing a new location by addressing needs and concerns before they arise.

Build-Ready certification is proof to a company that unknown obstacles have been removed, that the site due diligence has been performed and the project implementation timeline has been significantly accelerated.

With a Build-Ready site, much of the work, other than actual construction, has already been completed. That includes:

  • Control of the land to be developed
  • Archaeological
  • Environmental and geotechnical studies performed
  • Construction of a building pad
  • Preliminary design work (complete with project cost and construction timeframes clearly defined)
  • Approved site plan permits
  • Necessary infrastructure in place.
  • Construction can begin immediately
