Alba joins Aluminum extrusion council
Manama, March 16, 2013
Aluminium Bahrain (Alba), ranked as one of the largest aluminium smelters in the world, has become a member of Aluminum Extruders Council, a premier association for extrusion companies and suppliers in the US.
The Aluminum Extruders Council is an international association dedicated to helping manufacturers, engineers, architects and others to discover why aluminium extrusion is the preferred material process for better products.
Alba's membership into this community of over 100 major North American extrusion companies will enable it to participate in the vibrant exchange of technical and commercial information as well as contribute its longstanding knowledge and expertise in the production of high quality value added aluminium, said a company statement.
As a member, the Bahraini firm will have the additional benefit of taking part in training sessions, online programmes, seminars and conferences to learn of emerging technologies and industry trends and strengthen networking opportunities, it added.
Alba's resolve to consolidate its commitment to the growing US aluminium market provided one of the key motivations behind its membership of the Aluminium Extruders Council, said a senior official.
Alba sales & marketing manager (Europe/Americas), Boris Santosi and Metallurgy & Customer Technical Assistance Manager, Garry Martin attended the 2013 Annual Meeting & Leadership Conference of the Aluminum Extruders Council that took place at Florida, US from March 14 – 16.
Alba chief marketing executive, Jean Baptiste Lucas said, "As a company with a 40 year legacy, we have always recognised the significance of membership to trade bodies like the Council in knowledge exchange, in networking opportunities and in bolstering our presence across diverse territories."
"We are confident that this membership will further serve to enhance our growth strategy in the important North American market, and also, contribute towards expanding our understanding of new and emerging technologies in further improving our products," he added.-TradeArabia News Service
