Not just aluminum, Novelis Aluminum.TM
As the official provider of aluminum for FIRST™ Robotics Competition kits around the world, Novelis supports the young scientists, technologists, engineers and mathematicians that will one day help us solve some of the world’s greatest challenges.
The Walton Robotics team at Walton High School near our hometown of Atlanta, Georgia is one of the many FIRST Robotics teams around the world that Novelis employees work with directly as mentors, helping the team build their robot and advance through the competition process.
Last year, the Walton Robotics team came a long way in competition, and this year, they’re stronger than ever before. In this video, the team reflects on the experiences and lessons they learned in 2014. Now, they’ve got their eye on the 2015 FIRST World Championship in St. Louis, April 22-25.
Tune in to the Walton Robotics webisode series on the Novelis Blog over the next few weeks as we follow the team through the 2015 competition process and cheer them on at the World Championship in late April!
Novelis STEM Scholar, Jeromey Beaman, with his mother Daphnie, a Novelis employee, at Novelis headquarters.
Some of the world’s most impactful scientists are those with a passion and a vision for creating positive change in the world. Jeromey Beaman, a recipient of the 2014 Novelis STEM Scholarships, is on track to becoming one of those scientists.
A pre-med student at the University of Alabama at Tuscaloosa, Jeromey is pursuing a major in biology and plans to go on to practice in neonatology – a subspecialty of pediatrics focused on newborn infant care, especially for the ill or premature.
We asked Jeromey a few questions about where he gets his inspiration and desire to pursue a career in science and medicine. Here’s what he said: Read more »
I have exciting news to share – Novelis has been named a TAG Top 40 Innovative Technology Company for 2015. This honor, given by the Technology Association of Georgia (TAG), ranks Novelis among the most elite innovators and leading technology companies headquartered in the state. Regardless of market or industry, Top 40 companies all have two important traits in common – their innovations have 1) proven societal and financial impact, and 2) national and global reach.
Novelis earned its spot on the list for our latest alloy innovation for automotive aluminum, the Novelis AdvanzTM s615 alloy, which was first commercially implemented in the all-new, aluminum-bodied 2015 Ford F-150. Developed to meet Ford’s demanding 6HS2 specification but designed for a wide range of commercial applications, the Advanz s615 alloy had to be both extremely formable for high volume vehicle part stamping and assembly and extremely strong to meet demanding new standards for toughness and durability. This new alloy provides twice as much toughness as conventional automotive alloys, uniquely combining strength, toughness and formability like never before.

Anna Biegen, global supply chain analyst at Novelis, discusses an upcoming project launch with colleague Kushal Kothari.
In light of both Women’s History Month and International Women’s Day taking place in March, I’d like to take a moment to recognize the incredible accomplishments of women in business, science and engineering related fields, where they are often in the minority but increasingly are emerging as leaders.
Anna Biegen, a global supply chain analyst at Novelis headquarters in Atlanta, is one such example. Anna is passionate about what she does and is one of the many emerging leaders at Novelis whose dedication, hard work and critical thinking are helping us achieve our goals for today and beyond.
When asked about how she built her career, who her role models are and what her hopes are for the future, here is what Anna said…

At Novelis, we bring recycling, math and science education and safety to the world through the passion and volunteerism of our employees. In 2014, our employees donated 20,626 hours of their time and $253,088 of their hard earned money to take action on issues they care about, issues that impact our future and our society.
