Metro Alloys of Atlanta, Georgia, Named Among Top Scrap Suppliers for 2010 by Alcoa.

ATLANTA -- Alcoa North American Rolled Products (NARP) announced today the Top Scrap Suppliers for aluminum recycling for 2010. This recognition is part of Alcoa's industry-leading recycling efforts and marks the sixth consecutive year Alcoa has recognized leading firms in recycling.

"We are honored to be recognized by Alcoa as an outstanding supplier. Our relationship with Alcoa along with our Recycling Programs allow our customers to maximize the value of their scrap metal, " said Neil Berman, President of Metro Alloys, Inc.

Top suppliers are measured on the following criteria: safety, quality, volume, and delivery performance. This program has been a key component of Alcoa's plan to sustain the flow of material for aluminum recycling as challenging business conditions limited some availability. Alcoa has applied the same high purchasing standards used for its supply base since the inception of the awards program.

"We look to continue with this proven strategy, as NARP Scrap Purchasing looks to the future to meet our growing demand for recycled aluminum for our North American facilities," said Leslie Shuman, Director of Strategy and Supply Chain for NARP.

In 2009, Alcoa recycled approximately 700,000 metric tons of aluminum helping to further increase the Company's leading position in the industry. Aluminum is infinitely recyclable with approximately 75 percent of all aluminum produced since 1888 still in use today. Material from the siding, aerospace, automotive and ground transportation, lithographic, and extrusion markets are included in NARP's purchasing efforts.
