Constellium is to supply Auto Body Sheet for the new Corolla produced at Toyota’s European manufacturing plants.

Constellium was nominated as the sole supplier of Auto Body Sheet for the bonnet of the new Corolla, produced at the automaker’s facilities in Burnaston, UK and Arifiye, Turkey.

Toyota is using aluminium for the series on its European production lines for the first time.

“We are very proud of this successful collaboration with Toyota and are honoured to be supplying one of the world’s best-selling vehicles,” said Constellium VP of Global Automotive Rolled Products, Dieter Höll.

“Toyota and Constellium have partnered for many years to develop aluminium solutions for Toyota’s new models, tailored to their manufacturing process.”

Constellium provides Surfalex HS, an alloy with roping performance and corrosion resistance, for the outer part of the hood.

With more than 25 plants, Constellium maintains it is the only aluminium global supplier of both rolled products and structural components.
