BMW Selects Novelis to Supply Aluminum Sheet for X6

Novelis has been selected by BMW to supply aluminum sheet for the lightweight hoods of its all-new X6 crossover sport utility vehicle.

Novelis also supplies aluminum sheet for a number of other BMW models in both the US and Europe, including the 3 Series, the 5 Series and the 7 Series, as well as the X5 and the Z4.

Aluminum for the X6 and other models produced in the US is supplied from Novelis's manufacturing plants in Oswego, New York, and Kingston, Ontario.

Pat McNulty, automotive market director for Novelis in North America, said: "The X6 is yet another landmark vehicle from BMW, and we are proud that Novelis was chosen to supply our advanced aluminum sheet for the vehicle's hood."
