MCA Welcomes Alucoil, Hill & NorthClad as Members

   Author: Cathy Szmurlo
Location: Glenview, IL

March 5, 2013, Glenview, IL - The Metal Construction Association welcomes three additional companies to its membership. Alucoil North America of Manning, SC; Hill Architectural Systems of Franklin Park, IL; and NorthClad Rainscreen Systems of Everett, WA joined the ranks of the approximately 80 member companies with specialties in the metal construction industry.

Alucoil North America manufactures aluminum composite panels (ACM) for building and construction applications such as wall cladding, signage, and corporate imaging design. It is part of the Alucoil S.A. business group, based in Miranda de Ebro, Spain, a manufacturer of high-tech aluminum products for building & construction, transportation, and industrial applications.

"What appealed to us (about joining MCA), as a newer domestic manufacturer of an established product, was the fact that we would be able to immediately become involved in important decisions affecting our industry, our products, and our customers," said Samuel Chastain, vice president and general manager for Alucoil.

"We saw immediate value in taking part in white papers and other industry guidance efforts which benefit both metal composite product manufacturers and fabricators, and set standards to which we all refer to with a unified voice. Also, the forum MCA presents where product manufacturers like ourselves, our suppliers, and MCM fabricators can all discuss issues openly is invaluable. These, as well as the technical resources available to assist with complicated issues such as building codes, made it a necessity in our minds to join the MCA."

Hill Architectural Systems, a new division of The Hill Group, offers design, installation and fabrication of metal enclosures for buildings such as exterior metal panels, louvers, curtain wall systems and custom metal roofs.

"Hill Architectural Systems looks forward to our membership with the MCA," said Ryan Stojkovich, vice president of business development. "This national peer group setting is a terrific way for our newly formed division at The Hill Group to collaborate with other leading companies in the metal industry."

"We are driving our business to leverage 3D design and BIM coordination. We believe that MCA is truly starting to shine a light on these relatively new technologies and practices, specific to enclosure scopes of work, with focused events and seminars. We very much want to be a part of this effort," said Stojkovich.

NorthClad Rainscreen Solutions is a division of Northshore Sheet Metal and provides engineered exterior wall cladding systems in a variety of color, material, and finish options and are designed for simple, straight forward utilization.

"We felt that joining MCA would give us an excellent chance to support the industry and network with top senior level industry people," said Dave Killian, general manager of Northclad. "We are looking forward to staying informed about NFPA 285."

Editor's note: The NFPA 285 test is for exterior cladding assemblies that contain combustible elements. By successfully meeting the performance criteria of this test, and several additional tests, a combustible cladding assembly may be used where noncombustible construction is typically required by code.

About the Metal Construction Association
The Metal Construction Association brings together a diverse industry for the purpose of expanding the use of metal in construction through marketing, research and technology and education. Companies involved in MCA gain tremendous benefit from association activities that focus on research, codes and standards, market development, and technical programs. MCA's market development efforts increase the use of metal materials in construction through the education of the building and design communities about the benefits of metal.

MCA's next meeting is the 2013 Semi-Annual Meeting, June 24-26, 2013 at The Umstead in Raleigh, North Carolina.
