Aluminum an Essential Element of America’s Infrastructure Future

March 31, 2021

Tom Dobbins, president & CEO of the Aluminum Association released the following statement in response to President Biden’s announcement of the American Jobs Plan:

“We are pleased to see the Biden administration and the Congress focusing on infrastructure investment as the national priority that it is. Aluminum is an essential element to America’s infrastructure future – used widely in the electric grid, solar panels, electric vehicle charging stations and buildings of all kinds. Major investment will also provide a once-in-a-generation opportunity to modernize the nation’s recycling infrastructure, vital to shoring up domestic aluminum supply chains and increasing manufacturing self-sufficiency. The Aluminum Association stands ready to work with the administration and the Congress on investments that work for America’s vital aluminum manufacturing base.”
