The Next Frontier: Auto Body Frames

In a Reuters interview following a presentation at the American Metal Market Aluminum Summit, ATG Chairman Randall Scheps dubbed aluminum auto body frames as the “next frontier” for the industry.

Scheps said car companies are eager to explore how they can convert bodies from steel to aluminum, as they search for methods that decrease vehicle weight to meet higher fuel economy standards.

Additionally, in a separate interview during the conference with Ward's Auto, Scheps reaffirmed aluminum’s growth by asserting that “in the next five years, you'll see more high-volume mass-market cars with all-aluminum bodies.”
