Atlanta, GA  4/27/2012

Alcan Cable is proud to be a 2012 Silver Sponsor of the China Research Center at Mercer University in Atlanta, Georgia.

Founded in 2001, The China Research Center ( serves as a base for collaborative research and education between the Southeastern United States and China, Taiwan, Macao and Hong Kong. The Center promotes the understanding of greater China’s politics, economy, business environment and culture based on in-depth research and experience. The Center draws much if its expertise from the universities from the southeastern region of the U.S., working collaboratively across institutions and jointly with the public and private sectors.

“Alcan Cable’s sponsorship of the China Research Center at Mercer University is to acknowledge the valuable market information available from local University programs to support private industry in the successful implementation of international market strategies,” said Jack Miller, President, Alcan Cable.

Alcan Cable’s recognition of the China Research Center is a result of the knowledge and expertise provided by the Center’s Director, Dr. Penelope Prime. Dr. Prime is currently Professor of Economics in the School of Economics & Business at Mercer University and has 30 years of experience studying and working within Chinese culture and the Chinese economy.

Dr. Prime has consulted and collaborated with Alcan Cable to provide educational and cultural perspectives on China to both USA and Chinese employees. She recently designed and presented a program to Alcan Cable employees visiting from China about the U.S. and China housing markets.

“The Center values its relationships with companies like Alcan Cable, since learning is a two-way street. The Center’s mission is to educate about China. The China business environment changes so fast that companies’ experiences help inform academia as well,” said Dr. Penelope Prime, Director of the China Research Center. “In February of this year, Mike Fancher gave a fabulous presentation to my business students on his work in China. We appreciate the relationship and the sponsorship with Alcan Cable.”

Alcan Cable’s sponsorship of the China Research Center is in memory of Mike Fancher, Business Development Manager for Alcan Cable, who recently passed away.
