Alcan Donates US$500,000 to Assist in Katrina Relief Efforts
Montreal, Canada (ots/PRNewswire) - Alcan Inc. (NYSE, TSX: AL) announced today that it is donating US$500, 000 to the American Red Cross to assist in relief efforts following the devastation caused to the U.S. Gulf coast by hurricane Katrina last week.
"On behalf of Alcan, our deepest sympathies and prayers go out to the families and friends of the victims, in particular those who are part of our family. At present, many Alcan retirees and at least one employee were directly impacted by the hurricane," said Travis Engen, President and Chief Executive Officer of Alcan Inc. "Tens of thousands of people have lost everything: family, friends, homes, jobs. It is reassuring to see the global community unite and collectively assist the survivors to rebuild their lives," he added.
Alcan does not currently have any facilities in the affected region. Until 2003, Alcan operated a cable plant in Bay St. Louis, Mississippi, a town that was virtually flattened by Katrina, and the Company is already providing support in this area. The Company's former Bay St. Louis facility is one of the few buildings to have not been completely destroyed and is being used in the relief effort.
Alcan is monitoring developments in the region and continuing to assess additional means of providing assistance.
Alcan is a multinational, market-driven company and a global leader in aluminum and packaging. With world-class operations in primary aluminum, fabricated aluminum as well as flexible and specialty packaging, aerospace applications, bauxite mining and alumina processing, today's Alcan is well positioned to meet and exceed its customers' needs for innovative solutions and service.
