file/staff/brad nettles Uncertainty over the future of Century Aluminums Mount Holly smelter apparently led to an increase in accidents at the Goose Creek facility in recent months. Mount Holly did see far too high a number of incidences in May and June versus their history and versus our expectations, Mike Bless, Centurys president and CEO, told analysts during a conference call last week. medical school interview invites 2015Bless said the higher number of accidents are evidence to me at the stress of our people in this uncertain situation. Mount Holly had been pegged for closure by the end of this month because of high electricity costs. Bless announced last month that a new power agreement will keep the plant open at least through 2017, but at reduced capacity that cost 300 workers their jobs in December. Bless did not go into detail about the Mount Holly accidents and Marvin Dickerson, the plants manager, could not be reached for comment. The safety issues were not present at Centurys plants in Kentucky, Bless said. Its important to remember that all our plants continued to perform significantly better than industry norms, but as you see we did lose a little bit of momentum in a couple of key places, Bless said of the companys recent safety record. We remain committed to an environment of zero serious injuries in the company and thus were continuing to invest in this most important area. directoryProduction has improved at Mount Holly since the first of the year, Bless said, with workers overcoming some of the instability seen in the months after the layoffs and one of the plants two pot lines were shut down. You can see thats been corrected, so excellent work there, he said. Bless told analysts the new power agreement gives Mount Holly time to negotiate a long-term contract, but he doesnt expect any action in the next few months.
