Gov. Tomblin on Century Aluminum closure

CHARLESTON, W.Va. – Gov. Earl Ray Tomblin on July 28 issued the following statement in response to the announcement by Century Aluminum:

“I am disappointed by today’s announcement and have asked Century Aluminum officials to reconsider their decision to permanently close the company’s Ravenswood facility. We have worked diligently with the company as well as local, state and federal officials to find a solution that works for all parties, and we remain willing to offer assistance moving forward. If this decision remains final, I encourage Century Aluminum to work cooperatively with its retirees to address their benefit needs, and the West Virginia Development Office will assist in marketing the site to a new user.”
