release time:2011-03-30 08:58      

The Aluminum Association announced today the addition of four new member companies – Matalco, Page Material Management, Real Alloy and Texarkana Aluminum. Matalco, Real Alloy and Texarkana Aluminum join the association as producer members – firms that makes or fabricate aluminum products. Page Material Management joins as an associate member – an organization that supplies goods and services to the industry. 

“As we continue to advocate on behalf of the entire aluminum industry, we’re pleased to bring in these new voices to help us tell the sustainability story, including the metal’s infinite recyclability,” said Michelle O’Neill, Senior Vice President, Global Government Affairs & Sustainability at Alcoa and Chair of the Aluminum Association. “Recycling plays a critical role in the North American market, and we look forward to working with these new members to continue to move our industry forward.”

The association also announced a leadership change following the retirement of John Barneson, 2nd vice chair of the association and senior vice president for corporate development at Kaiser Aluminum. Buddy Stemple, CEO of Constellium Rolled Products in Ravenswood, WV, was elected to complete the remainder of Barneson’s term as an officer with the Aluminum Association. Stemple, who began his career as an intern at the Ravenswood plant in 1979, is a longtime and active member of the association and industry. 

“I’m grateful for the opportunity to serve the aluminum industry as an officer for the Aluminum Association,” Stemple said. “The association has been on the front lines tackling issues that are impacting our industry, and I look forward to continuing to support this work as 2nd Vice Chair.”
