Restrictions are being put on industrial plants of natural gas as that energy source is being prioritized for residential use. Natural gas is the primary energy source in Cuprum – Louisville’s casting and extrusion of aluminum, therefore production of new product has come to a stop.  This news comes in addition to the communication posted on 2/11 stating that Louisville was suspending production of any non-core ladders at this time.
