RIVERDALE, Iowa (KWQC) – Could it be a sign of the times? The blue letters are missing from the sign in front of the Alcoa plant in Riverdale. The company announced in March that it would be splitting its commodity business from its fabricated products and forming two companies.
The Quad City plant will be part of the new company, which will be renamed Arconic. Alcoa said this week the separation is to take place before Nov. 1, 2016.
The local company spokesman says the new logo will be installed at the plant within the next week or two.
