Arch Aluminum Issues Statement on Facility Closures
October 30, 2009

Arch Aluminum & Glass Co. Inc. in Tamarac, Fla., issued a statement today on the recent closure of facilities. The statement is as follows:

During the past year, our industry has been adversely impacted by declining demand in our end markets. In response, Arch Aluminum & Glass has taken a series of actions to align our costs with this reduced demand. In particular, we have selectively closed or temporarily shuttered certain locations (Kansas City, KS; Rogers, MN; Nashville, TN; and Sarasota, FL) whose customers can be fully served and supported by other Arch facilities. These actions have made Arch a leaner, more competitive company. Most importantly, these improvements to our cost structure will allow us to better serve our customers in today's challenging market environment and will position us to more effectively capitalize on future opportunities when conditions improve.
