One of the United States’ leading manufacturers of aluminum extrusion products and related services, Western Extrusions maintains high standards regarding workplace safety and product quality. To support its endeavors, Western Extrusions is a member of the Aluminum Anodizers Council (AAC), which offers a number of educational benefits to its associates.

Members are invited to attend the Annual International Anodizing Conference and Exposition, where they have the opportunity to meet fellow professionals, learn more about the latest developments in the industry, and attend keynote presentations by industry experts. Further, the AAC holds the Anodizing Essentials Workshop, which was developed to enhance the knowledge of anyone involved with anodizing about the anodizing process, from identification of the metallurgical properties of common aluminum alloys, through to the concluding rinse and sealing processes.

In addition to these events, the AAC also offers a range of publications, some of which are available to members without charge. These include Anodizing Newsline, a bi-monthly newsletter focusing on the latest industry news, the activities of members, and advice for professionals, and the Environmental Guidebook, which exhaustively details the regulations surrounding the industry as well as offers compliance strategies for waste management.

For instance, referrals with a joining membership due of $1,000 will enable the member to receive $500 off their renewal dues. Additionally, new members will receive a free Level One Anodizing Essentials Workshop registration, valued at $400. The campaign runs through June 1, 2017.
