EAST ALTON, Ill. (AP) –  A company that makes and distributes copper and copper-alloy products is considering moving its headquarters from the Metro East to Kentucky.

The Alton Telegraph reports that Olin Brass is mulling the move to Louisville, affecting about 20 high-paying jobs.

The company says a final decision hasn’t been made and a site
hasn’t been chosen.

Olin Brass is a division of Global Brass and Copper Inc.

Olin was once part of Olin Corp., which recently announced plans to move up to 1,000 jobs in its Winchester Centerfire operations from East Alton to Oxford, Miss.

East Alton Mayor Fred Bright says he was unaware of the potential move and isn’t commenting.
