Anglo-Dutch steelmaker Corus Group Ltd. has signed a non-binding letter of intent to sell its remaining primary aluminum business to American Industrial Acquisition Corp. (AIAC), Greenwich, Conn., a closely held private equity investment firm.

The sale, which includes two smelters in the Netherlands and Germany, would bring an end to a long-running effort by Corus to offload the plants.
