ARLINGTON, VA -- Heidi Brock, President & CEO of the Aluminum Association, commented on the Trump administration’s launch of a 232 investigation to determine the effects of aluminum imports on U.S. national security.
“The Aluminum Association, whose member companies represent the majority of aluminum production and fabrication in the United States, supports President Trump’s call for action to address unfair trade practices that are hurting U.S. aluminum producers and fabricators. This action recognizes the value of U.S. aluminum industry, its full growth potential and its ability to compete successfully in the global marketplace. We look forward to continuing our work with the administration to ensure that global trade actions take into account the entire aluminum value chain and our more than 161,000 workers in the United States.”
