GFG Alliance plans to beef up its presence in conteniental Europe

Industrialist Sanjeev Gupta's Liberty House, part of the GFG Alliance, is to acquire Europe's largest aluminium smelter in Dunkerque, France, kick-starting a major expansion by the company into mainland Europe. Liberty House will now begin a consultation process with those employees, along with the European Works Council and stakeholders, and ultimately plans to expand the site and create thousands more jobs, at the site itself and more widely. This is driven by the trend towards lighter-weight vehicles with a lower carbon footprint. Aluminium Dunkerque has a high-quality aluminium operation benefitting from a top-class workforce and management. "This will be our key strength when embarking on our ambitious plans", he said in a statement.

"We want to develop the plant into an global centre of aluminium and downstream aluminium products expertise", Gupta said in the statement.
