AEC Elects New Vice Chairman
July 31, 2009

Duncan Crowdis, president of Bonnell Aluminum in Newnan, Ga., has been elected vice chairman of the Aluminum Extruders Council (AEC). Crowdis joins three other members of the AEC board of directors executive committee: chairman Thomas Schabel, chief executive officer of Alexandria Extrusion Company in Alexandria, Minn.; at-large member Curt Rone, chief financial officer of the Loxcreen Company in West Columbia, S.C.; and immediate past chairman Craig Werner, president of Werner Extrusion Solutions in Lake Forest, Ill.

Crowdis has been on the AEC board of directors and held the position of extruder director since 2006. Traditionally, the vice chairman moves forward to the position of AEC chairman after serving a two-year term.

Crowdis, a 35-year veteran of the aluminum industry has held various positions, including those in technical, operations, marketing, sales and general management. He first became involved in the extrusion business in 1990 as the general manager for the Canadian Central Region of Alcan Aluminum and was part of the acquisition of several facilities from Alcan that formed Exal Aluminum Inc. in 1994. He joined Bonnell Aluminum in 1998 through the acquisition of Exal Aluminum Inc., and became the president and general manager for the company in June 2005 and vice president of Tredegar Corporation, Bonnell Aluminum's parent company, in January 2009.
