The aluminum firm Alcoa, headquartered in Pittsburgh, has named its Top North American Scrap Suppliers for 2013. The company says this year marks the ninth consecutive year its recycling and scrap purchasing group has recognized its best suppliers in key performance criteria, including safety, quality, volume, breadth of supply to multiple locations and delivery performance.
For the first time, this year’s winners represent suppliers to the newly consolidated Alcoa Recycling organization.
“Working closely with suppliers, and recognizing their work to safely deliver high-quality scrap, is an important component of our plan to increase recycled content in our products,” says Michael Boyle, Alcoa director of metal management. “2013 has been an important year for Alcoa Recycling as we fully integrated and leveraged the Evermore Recycling organization into our team. This helps the entire organization to focus even more on aluminum recycling opportunities across all markets and geographies.
“Our suppliers have been great partners in that transition, and the response from the market has been terrific,” Boyle adds. “We look forward to working with these and all our suppliers to grow their business and further expand the use of scrap across all Alcoa facilities.”
