Braidy Industries changes name to Unity Aluminum

Unity Aluminum Braidy

ASHLAND, Ky. (AP) — An aluminum company planning to build a massive mill in Appalachia has changed its name from Braidy Industries to Unity Aluminum. A release from the company Thursday says the new name “signifies the company’s steadfast commitment to its customers, innovative technologies and local community in Ashland.” Company leaders say Unity is in a position to help fill the nation’s shortage of domestic aluminum and aging facilities. The company underwent a management shakeup this year when Braidy founder Craig Bouchard was removed as CEO.
