The Aluminum Anodizers Council's 2014 Aluminum Conference and Exposition is Sept. 16-18 in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. The event has been delivering industry-focused information and education, giving anodizers the tools and know-how to make well-informed decisions and improve their companies’ performance for over two decades.

 

Guy Charpentier from Bonnell Aluminum will speak on Strategies to Grow Demand for Anodizing Finishing.  The AAC says that if you are in the anodizing industry, you will want to hear this presentation which will provide you with strategies aimed at growing the demand for anodized finishing in the commercial architectural market.

 

Lynn Brown from Long Point Associates, who is the industry consultant to the Aluminum Extruders Counci,l will speak on Aluminum and the Road to 54.5 Implications for Anodizers.  When Ford launched the 2015 F-150 earlier this year, the general public caught on to the fact that those in the aluminum world have known for several years – that aluminum will play a major role in the automaker’s plans to greatly improve fuel efficiency and reduce their carbon footprint.  This session will look at the accelerating use of aluminum in North American autos, the issues yet to be resolved, and the implications of this market on the development for anodizers.
