Alcan (Tianjin) Alloy Products Co. Ltd. Achieves Major Safety Milestone in China

  1/13/2009

Alcan (Tianjin) Alloy Products Ltd., an Alcan Cable business, achieved one million safe work hours without a recordable accident or environmental incident in November 2008. This accomplishment is particularly significant because it includes full-time employees, expatriates, and contractors located at various offices and warehouses in Beijing, Shanghai, Chengdu, Guangzhou, and Tianjin as well as personnel at the Tianjin Airport Industrial Park plant construction site.

“Health and Safety management on our project site has been truly effective due to the strong partnership between Alcan Cable, Hooker Cockram (Shanghai) Project Consulting & Technology Company and the 11 other major sub-contractors used during construction,” says Richard Baker, Tianjin Project Director. “Together we have established a culture of accident prevention that has contributed to this achievement.”  

“I am very proud of the dedication of all Alcan Cable employees to our Environmental, Health and Safety program,” says Ivan Salamin, General Manager, Alcan (Tianjin) Alloy Products Co. Ltd.  “Our strong focus on accident and injury prevention has resulted in this significant safety milestone and takes us one step closer on our Road to Zero accidents.”

The Alcan (Tianjin) Alloy Products Co. Ltd. manufacturing facility is currently in the commissioning phase with production scheduled to begin in the first quarter of 2009.  Using state-of-the-art equipment technology, the plant will manufacture a unique aluminium alloy known as the STABILOY® brand of aluminium alloy building wire, formulated especially for electrical feeder conductor applications in residential and commercial buildings as well as in a variety of industrial applications.
