BOWLING GREEN, Ky. (AP) - A $150 million aluminum production plant is being planned for the Kentucky Transpark in Bowling Green.

Constellium N.V., based in the Netherlands, and UACJ Corp. of Japan, have formed a joint venture to build the 225,000-square foot facility. A release from Gov. Steve Beshear on Friday says the plant is expected to create 80 new jobs. The proposal will be subject to regulatory approval, due to its potential electric demands.

The governor’s office says the project would be one of the largest in south central Kentucky in the past decade. The two companies will supply aluminum coils that will be treated and processed at the Bowling Green plant. Most of the finished products will be sold to auto makers.

Construction is expected to begin in the summer.
