Alcoa puts four Indiana sites up for sale

New York-based Alcoa Inc. said today it has resumed its attempt to sell its packaging and consumer unit, which includes the headquarters in Indianapolis and three plants in Crawfordsville. The Indianapolis operation on the northwest side in Park 100 includes a plastic bottle cap plant.

Alcoa also said it is nearing a definitive agreement to sell its automotive castings business; however, although the casting business includes a plant at Auburn near Fort Wayne, the Auburn plant would not be included in a sale.

Including locations in Lafayette, LaPorte and Warrick, Alcoa employs about 4,000 in the state.
