Reynolds Metals is closing two Arkansas plants.

September 27, 1985

The company reported that it will begin shutting down all of its primary aluminum production in Arkansas effective mid-October. The announcement affects both the Patterson reduction plant at Arkadelphia and the Jones Mills reduction plant at Malvern. About 900 people are employed at the two plants. The company said: "Costs at the plants have become prohibitive and are so far over the market price for aluminum that we simply cannot continue to operate these facilities."
