Heinkele exits CMC's top scrap role.

Commercial Metals Company (CMC) of Dallas has announced the retirement of Harry Heinkele, president of CMC's Secondary Metals Processing Division, after more than 24 years. Former CMC Chief Operating Officer Alan Postel has now assumed the role.

Heinkele, 72, began his career with CMC in 1980 having been previously employed by NL Industries. He was named the head of the Secondary Metals Processing Division shortly after joining CMC. He is credited with restructuring the division to emphasize strong and efficient regional operations with expanded capacity. Heinkele's career at OMC culminated with the "best-ever" year for the division in fiscal 2004.

Alan Postel joined CMC in 1974 as a manager trainee and has assumed positions of increasing responsibility in the division, having been named COO in March of 2004.

"We will miss Harry. Harry has made a major contribution to the growth of CMC's Secondary Metals Processing Division over more than two decades," says CMC chairman, president and CEO Stanley A. Rabin.

"CMC is fortunate to have someone with Alan Posters background to effect a seamless management transition," Rabin says.

Commercial Metals Co. and its subsidiaries manufacture, recycle and market steel and metal products, related materials and services through a network of steel mini-mills, metal recycling facilities, steel fabrication and processing plants, construction-related product warehouses, a copper tube mill and marketing and distribution offices in the United States and in some overseas markets.
