ALCOA Letter

Please accept my personal thanks and the appreciation of Aluminum Company of America for the creativity and cooperation that your company exhibited as you worked with us to apply new lubricant technology to our pipe drawing operations.  By 

modifying our production facilities, we were able to utilize your water based lubricants and eliminate the use of chlorinated solvents in our facility at Spartanburg, South Carolina.

Alcoa recognized the accomplishment of the Spartanburg plant by awarding the 1995 Environmental Excellence award for innovation to that plant.  Your work to provide the lubricant was an integral part of that effort.

Thank you again for your assistance in this program.  Your willingness to work with us is most appreciated.
