CONSHOHOCKEN, Pa., May 30, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Constellium, a global manufacturing leader in aluminum products and solutions, has awarded Quaker Chemical Corporation (NYSE: KWR, "Quaker") with the 2016 Constellium Muscle Shoals Supplier Excellence Award.
As part of a supplier incentive program to make Constellium more competitive in the market, Quaker has excelled as a top supplier. Flavio Alberino, Procurement Director of Constellium's Muscle Shoals plant, commented, "Quaker is a top supplier performer and clearly deserved this award for its outstanding work and committed team."
At the Muscle Shoals (Alabama, USA) plant, the Quaker emulsion performance resulted in significant Total Cost of Ownership (TCO) savings surpassing the benchmarked target. Quaker achieved this decrease in average cost/mm lbs in the hot line rolling oil with a similar production output level.
An award ceremony was held in April 2017 at the Muscle Shoals site that was attended by Constellium executives and Quaker Associates.
