Nov. 7, 2018—Aluminum rolling company Novelis is setting up a network of bases to increase product development specifically for the automotive industry, reported Automotive Logistics Media.

Its customer solution centers (CSCs) will be located close to OEM plants in North America, China and Europe and will be used to encourage the use of aluminum in applications from car doors and electric battery enclosures to full body-in-white design.

In addition to supply chain, material and design work, the CSCs will seek to ensure closed-loop recycling systems are in place, with the aim of encouraging greater use of alloys with higher recycled content to help curb CO2 emissions and establish more secure supply chains, according to the report.
