A major new container for industrial-strength aluminum has been unveiled by a manufacturer of containers.
The aluminum container can hold up to 10,000 pounds of the metal and can be used to transport aluminum from a welding facility to an industrial facility.
The container was unveiled Tuesday at the North American International Auto Show in Detroit.
It is a partnership between the Aluminum Corporation of America, a subsidiary of General Motors, and the United States Aluminum Corporation.
The aluminum container is made of 1,000-pound aluminum tubes.
Each tube contains 1,600 pounds of industrial grade aluminum and can hold 10,150 pounds.
Aluminum tubes are made from high-strength materials such as stainless steel, titanium and steel, according to the company.
The Aluminum Corporation’s product line includes metal-air air compressor tanks, aluminum pipe, aluminum and steel pipes, and other commercial products.
The U.S. Aluminum Corporation said the aluminum container could be made in the United, Canada or Mexico.
The company said it could be manufactured in the U.K. or Mexico in a few months.
The company also said the product would be a key part of its aluminum supply chain.
The U. S. aluminum industry has been struggling to recover from the 2007-09 recession and the Great Recession.
The industry suffered a record amount of job losses during that recession and some companies were forced to lay off workers, many of whom were part-time.
The unemployment rate was 13.7 percent in March, the highest in the country.
