Alcoa wins industry award
Aluminum maker Alcoa was given two awards at Thursday’s Platts Global Metals Awards in London.
The company was named Metals Company of the Year and given the Industry Leadership Award: Aluminum at a banquet at London’s Savoy hotel that included 200 steel industry executives.
We congratulate Alcoa, under the leadership of CEO Klaus Kleinfeld, for this impressive win,” said Platts President Larry Neal. “Each of this year’s winners and finalists deserves praise for important contributions to the metals sector in these challenging times of oversupply and soft prices. It’s notable in the 2015 competition that companies were thinking outside the box and taking measures to move up- and down-stream in search of competitive edge and improved financial performance.”
Also winning an award was U.S. Steel Chief Executive Officer Mario Longhi, who was named CEO of the Year.
