Aleris announced it has signed a contract with FAW-Volkswagen to provide aluminum for several Audi models to be produced in China. Aleris will supply aluminum for the Audi A3 Sportback and Sedan models to be produced in Foshan, in Guangdong Province, and the Audi Q5 produced in Changchun, in Jilin Province. Aleris will also increase its supply of aluminum provided for the Audi A6 made in Changchun.

For all models, Aleris will supply the Superlite 200 alloy which provides the optimal mix of strength, surface finish and corrosion resistance. Superlite is best suited for the development of lightweight, energy efficient vehicles while maintaining excellent performance and safety standards.

Mr Andreas Gondorf VP of Global Automotive, Aleris Rolled Products said that "We look forward to expanding our strategic partnership with FAW-Volkswagen (Audi) in China. As a global leader in aluminum products, Aleris is well-positioned to support Audi's continued focus on the production of lighter, more environmentally sustainable vehicles."
