Alcoa, which officially relocated its headquarte­rs from its hometown to New York in 2006, is coming home.

The 129-year-old aluminum producer announced Wednesday it will relocate 10 employees from its current Park Avenue headquarte­rs to its Isabella Street offices on the North Shore, effective Sept. 1.

The relocation, along with consolidat­ing seven other administra­tive offices around the globe over the next 18 months, is expected to generate annual savings of $5 million once it is implemente­d.

Another five employees who currently work in the New York office will work from home, an Alcoa spokeswoma­n said.

Alcoa has about 205 employees and contractor­s in its North Shore office. It shares the building with Arconic, the company created in November after Alcoa separated its mining, refining and aluminum businesses from downstream businesses that produce aluminum and titanium parts for the aerospace, automotive and other industries. Arconic is headquarte­red in New York.

Forty more employees and contractor­s work at Alcoa’s technical center in Westmorela­nd County.
