Aluminum Manufacturing Plant - Barstow

$1.5 Billion Aluminum Manufacturing Plant Coming to Barstow

According to the Victorville Daily Press, March 04, 2014, the City Council on Monday night voted 5-0 to approve the framework of a development agreement that would bring a $1.5 billion aluminum production facility and as many as 2,000 high-skilled manufacturing jobs to the Barstow area. The proposed Exclusive Negotiating Agreement with Newport Beach-based Scuderia Development to build a 2.95 million-square-foot facility for China Zhongwang Holdings Limited on 964 acres between Lenwood and Hodge roads has been in the works since the fall, city officials said. Scuderia Development filed a letter of intent with the city in November, with a proposal to build the plant on a lot just south of the defunct Sun & Sky Country Club and golf course in Lenwood.

One of the largest secondary aluminum production factories in the world would be constructed in multiple phases over several years, but the first phase of the project would likely be operational within three years, according to city documents. According to its website, China Zhongwang Holdings Limited is the world’s second-largest manufacturer of industrial aluminum profiles. Founded in 1993 and based in the Liaoning Province, the company produces an array of aluminum products used in a variety of industries, from rail transportation to automobiles to aerospace.
