One of the world’s largest copper recyclers will bring about 125 jobs to the Augusta area after a local production plant begins construction next summer.
Hamburg, Germany-based Aurubis AG plans to build a $340 million recycling and secondary-smelting facility on 150 acres in Augusta Corporate Park off Mike Padgett Highway. Secondary smelting is the process by which copper scrap is reformed into material used in producing finished products.
