Constellium supports the "Aluminium Closures - Turn 360" campaign
promoting aluminium benefits in packaging closures systems 
PARIS -- (Marketwire) -- 12/13/12 --  As the worldwide  leading
supplier of aluminium strip and sheets for the aluminium closures
market, Constellium is at the forefront of an  ambitious pan-European
promotion campaign  "Aluminium Closures -Turn 360 degrees", along
with the leading European manufacturers of aluminium closures,
through the European Aluminium Foil Association (EAFA). 
The campaign is intended to enhance public awareness about aluminium
closures as an  intelligent  and  economic  alternative  to other
closure systems. Aluminium
closures offer many benefits in areas like
taste and quality, sustainability and recycling, convenience,
technology, cost efficiency, and design. Providing easy-to-grasp   
information   and   the   latest   scientific   findings
regarding
sustainability,   the   aluminium   closure  industry 
takes  a  clear path  in demonstrating its superior characteristics. 
"Our  sales for the aluminium closures market  have been growing
strongly in the last  years. This is the best solution  for wine,
spirits, water and other types
of  products such  as olive  oils. In 
particular, wine  makers are increasingly
recognizing  the great
advantages of having  a screwed on aluminium closure, and the high
quality of Constellium's metal solutions," said Raphael Thevenin,
Sales
& Marketing Director - Aluminium Rigid Packaging at
Constellium. 
"The  growing interest in aluminium closures can expand much further
with a more
global outreach to the wine community. This is why
Constellium has been actively
participating in the working group at
the origin of this campaign. Together with
our  customers  we  can 
be  faster,  more  efficient in promoting the aluminium
closures than
as individual companies". 
The   "Aluminium   Closures  -  Turn  360 degrees" campaign  is 
rolled-out through  a multilingual  website designed  to appeal  in
particular  decision makers in the wine  sector, thus providing 
extensive information on  the multiple benefits of aluminium  use in
closures. More public relations activities will run throughout
Europe
 during  2013 as  an  integral  part  of the promotional campaign. A
wide
selection   of   aluminium   closure   images  is  available  on
