Braidy Industries was created by Craig T. Bouchard to lead a national transformation in the use of efficient, eco-friendly aluminum alloys that are also lighter and stronger. Our goal is to lead the generational shift in materials science that is currently underway.

“Braidy Industries’ decision to locate in Eastern Kentucky has the potential to be as significant as any economic deal ever made in the history of Kentucky,” said Gov. Bevin. “This $1.3 billion investment will create enormous opportunity for people in the region, and would not have been possible without our recently passed right-to-work legislation. I look forward to the success of Braidy Industries as they leverage the incredible work ethic found in Eastern Kentucky. The ripple effect of this investment will be significant and will produce positive change in the region for generations to come.”

Working Hard, Hard Working

We chose to build our brand new, fully integrated aluminum rolling mill in Eastern Kentucky for many reasons. The first of those reasons is the people. The region’s history of coal mining and other labor intensive pursuits has earned its people a well-deserved reputation for the kind of hard work and dedication that we covet in our workforce.

Eastern Kentucky also appealed to us because we found true partners in both public and private organizations at the local and state level. Governor Matt Bevin has worked with us closely to make this project a reality, and with his continued support, and the support of the people of this region, Braidy Industries is excited to call Eastern Kentucky home.
