Steel Dynamics will be hiring for its joint venture, Aluminum Dynamics, for employees in the following fields:

  • Electrical Engineering
  • Mechanical Engineering
  • Operations
  • Metallurgy
  • Maintenance
  • Construction
  • Manufacturing
  • Shipping
  • Equipment Operations
  • Administration.

While some of the technical jobs, such as engineering and maintenance, will require a four-year degree or equivalent experience, many with a high school degrees or GEDs will be considered for other jobs that include production work.

Aluminum Dynamics anticipates they will begin production in the summer of 2025.  By then, the company expects to have 750 total employees. Once the plant is staffed, the company will continue to work with the local colleges on programs geared to metal manufacturing-related work.
