R. S. Reynolds watches the first official tapping of aluminum at Reynolds’ Listerhill reduction plant in Colbert County in 1941. Reynolds, a North Carolinian, founded the U.S. Foil Company, which in 1947 introduced Reynolds Wrap. Reynolds Metals permanently closed the Listerhill plant in 1986, though it was last in full production in 1980. Photo courtesy of Alabama Department of Archives & History.
