This week's bombshell that the US will normalize relations with Cuba reminded us of the U.S.-Cuba Business Conference our parent company organized in 2003, the last time we thought normalizing relations was just around the corner.

Befesa inaugurates its new smelting plant in Saxony-Anhalt

Amazon The multinational technology group Befesa has opened its new smelting plant for making aluminium alloys in the industrial area of Bernburg, in Saxony-Anhalt. The company is investing approximately $25 million at the site and is creating about 60 new jobs.

The metalworking industry has a long history in Saxony-Anhalt. Attracting Befesa, headquartered in Spain, again shows that Saxony-Anhalt can offer excellent conditions when competing for investors internationally. Javier Molina Montes, Chairman of the Board of Directors of Befesa confirms this: "The new facility for recovering aluminium will be supplied to a large extent by the nearby Novelis plant. We assume that the new production site in Bernburg will be one of the most productive sites in the industry."

Investors in Saxony-Anhalt benefit from its location in the center of Europe, its state-of-the-art infrastructure, highly skilled and motivated workforce, excellent investment incentives and very competitive cost structure. Saxony-Anhalt offers an outstanding research landscape and a culture of innovation.
