Plant Controller, Decatur Alabama

Company Background:
Wolverine has been a leader in the manufacture of copper and copper alloy tube offering proprietary custom-engineered components that provide thermal management solutions for our customers in multiple markets including HVAC, refrigeration and appliance, electronics cooling, power generation, petrochemical, and chemical processing.

In 2016, following a strategic review of its strengths and capabilities, it was decided to refocus the company on growth segments in highly engineered aluminum products where the company had a competitive advantage and away from copper and copper tube commodities. As such, management initiated a significant investment program to repurpose and transform the Wolverine Decatur campus into a world-class next-generation sustainable integrated Aluminum manufacturing solutions provider.

  • Engineering and heat transfer modeling
  • High Precision Extrusion
  • Friction Stir Welding
  • Complex Machining and finishing

The heightened demand for aluminum engineered components in transportation, electronics, and for logistics products, combined with the geographic benefits of Alabama for aerospace, automotive and military customers created a strategic advantage for sustainable growth in the Huntsville area.

Today, Wolverine is the most advanced integrated aluminum solutions provider in North America. Our facility in Decatur, Alabama is a full-service Aluminum extrusion plant offering 6,000 series extrusions as well as custom fabrication and friction stir welding solutions to the markets we serve.
