An area aluminum company has been sold. ALCAST Midwest Works in Fairfield sold its operating assets to Aluminum Castings Company based out of Galesburg, Illinois. ACC Vice President Scott Kelsey has stated that the acquisition does not mean any significant changes in day to day operations and that management will not change. Kelsey sees a bright future for the company and the industry, “The industry is strong and as long we are able to maintain sustainable profits, we are looking at adding a new sand molding machine in Fairfield, which would add jobs here.” As part of the sale, 36 of the 47 Fairfield employees were hired by ACC. The sale was made final on November 29th.
