Brad Russell and Ramon Romero were initially unsure of their longer-term plans after serving in the United States military.

Youngjin Steel is featuring Novelis aluminum sandwich panels at its plant and a showroom in Dangjin, South Chungcheong Province, Korea. The Dangjin Plant chose aluminum sandwich panels for roofing and walls.

The plant also used aluminum sandwich panels for the main wall cladding and juxtaposed the sandwich panels with color steel panels to create a visual contrast between the two materials. Youngjin Steel took advantage of the aluminum sandwich panels’ light […]
