Aluminum USA (ALU USA) is taking place in Nashville, Tenn., September 12-13, 2019, where the event will feature an exhibition and conference for all things related to aluminum. The event also recently announced a sponsorship agreement with the Aluminum Extruders Council (AEC), an organization dedicated to helping the industry, which will bring an educational element to the 2019 event.

“We are delighted to announce our relationship with AEC,” says Michael Mandl, ALU USA group vice president. “Working with AEC aligns us with key industry extrusion leaders and enhances the opportunity for attendees to learn and source efficient and cost-effective, cutting-edge solutions from leading suppliers. AEC is committed to helping its members and the industry overcome the challenges that arise in the manufacturing environment and is in perfect alignment with our mission and meets the needs of ALU USA attendees.”
Jeff Henderson, AEC president, says the partnership will help to expand the event’s offerings.

“AEC is very excited to partner and collaborate with ALU USA to help create a comprehensive event for the entire aluminum value chain in the United States,” Henderson says. “Education is key. We are delighted to organize and collocate the second edition of Extrusion Design University with ALU USA. EDU was designed to increase knowledge of designing and engineering products using aluminum extrusions. The program includes educational sessions covering topics in various end markets, including architectural, automotive, and general industrial and product design, arranged in subject-specific tracks and networking opportunities. Both AEC and ALU USA are committed to delivering state-of-the-art insight, innovation and extrusion expertise for the benefit of industry professionals, designers and engineers.”
