"Nichols has a long history of producing flat-rolled aluminum sheet products for customers in a number of key industries across North America and we look forward to continuing that long-standing tradition," Steve Demetriou, Aleris chairman and CEO said.

Upon the close of the transaction, Nichols will become part of Aleris' Rolled Products North America business, adding more than 500 Nichols employees to the Aleris team.

The transaction is expected to close following receipt of customary regulatory approvals.
