The United States is the world’s largest producer of aluminum and is in the process of building an aluminum smelter in the state of North Carolina, and plans to start construction on a massive factory that will produce up to 1 million tons of aluminum each year.
The plant is located in the industrial city of Winston-Salem, which is about halfway between Charlotte and Raleigh, the site of a major auto assembly plant.
The company that will build the factory, General Motors, will invest more than $20 billion in the project.
The factory, which will be one of the largest in the world, will be built in the form of a two-story office building that will house a manufacturing plant and a distribution center.
The project, which includes more than 150 buildings, is part of an effort by GM to ramp up production at its assembly plant in the United States.
The facility is expected to produce between 2 million and 3 million tons annually.
GM will be the largest company to operate the plant in North Carolina since General Motors began operations in the region in 2001.
General Motors said it is currently planning to build a factory in Charlotte that will employ approximately 300 workers.
The plan to build the plant comes as North Carolina is being hit hard by a massive drought and the state has already had to spend more than a billion dollars to fight the virus.
The drought has been particularly severe in recent weeks, as temperatures have plummeted and the air quality has been worse.
The outbreak of the virus has also been a major concern in the Mid-Atlantic and across the country.
North Carolina has the second-highest rate of people in the country who are infected with the virus, after California.
North Carolinians who were diagnosed with the disease have been urged to stay home from work and to limit outdoor activities to six hours a day.
The U.S. has now had five confirmed cases of the new virus.
