President, Latin America Engineered Products

Alcoa, Inc.        

Q.    Briefly describe your products and services

DD. We provide extruded aluminium products to the Building and Construction, Automotive, Industrial Products, and Aerospace industries in South America. 

Q.    What cultural trends are affecting your customers and end users (if different)?

DD. Many large manufacturers in North America and Europe are faced with increased competition from competitors in low labor cost countries (i.e. China).   Faced with this new competitive threat, they increasingly look to reposition their production off-shore and/or source inputs for their production from low labor cost countries in order to compete.
