Mine aluminum smelter cuts production after operating problems

Robert Wilt, the CEO of Maaden, known as the Gulf's largest mining company, reports that, the company has shut down some of its potential lines as it faces quality control issues and tries to stabilize the plant.

Stating that none of its customers will be affected, Wilt did not comment on how much the production was affected. When asked about the financial impact of the rolling mill problems, Wilt said, "I don't expect it to affect our budget."
