Elevated view of the magnesium rolling mill at the Dow Chemical Company facilities located in Madison, Illinois. The plant's 13-ton extrusion press, which was manufactured in Duisburg, Germany and could produce extrusions up to 80 feet long, is visible at the center of photograph. Dedicated in 1954, the magnesium fabrication plant in Madison was the world's first facility designed for the mass production of magnesium mill products and boasted the first large-scale magnesium sheet mill, as well as the largest extrusion facilities for the metal.
