Neighborhood 91 will be home to Rusal America’s new aluminum AM powders business announced in January 2021.

“En+ Group is the world leader in low-carbon aluminum through our ALLOW brand,” says C. Brian Hesse, president and CEO of Rusal America. “By enabling sustainable operations, Neighborhood 91 is an ideal location from which to expand our presence in the AM powders market without compromising on our core sustainability principles. We remain committed to enabling our customers to play a vital role in the sustainability value chain and to playing an active role in the innovation ecosystem at Neighborhood 91 in the years ahead.”

Rusal America’s powders portfolio serves the aerospace and automotive industries. With Neighborhood 91’s proximity to Pittsburgh International Airport and the region’s academic institutions, Rusal America will be joined by other next-generation AM innovators in a region with a long history of manufacturing leadership in the U.S.

“Rusal America’s commitment to Neighborhood 91 is another important step in the evolution of additive manufacturing at the Pittsburgh Airport Innovation Campus,” says Paul Hoback, chief development officer, Pittsburgh International Airport. “We are thrilled to welcome Rusal America as the latest partner, further demonstrating the viability of Neighborhood 91 and the success of its ecosystem as a first-of-its-kind AM powerhouse.”
