Hydro aluminum North America names new president

Hydro Aluminum North America announced a new structure and the appointment of a new president resulting from the integration of VAW of America assets into the company.

VAW of America became part of Hydro Aluminum North America as a result of the sale of the German company, VAW Aluminum, to Norway's Norsk Hydro, earlier this year. Hydro Aluminum North America, a major supplier of aluminum extruded shapes and drawn tubes for the building and construction industry, is a part of Oslo, Norway-based Hydro Aluminum, one of the business groups within Norsk Hydro.

Martin Carter was appointed president of Hydro Aluminum North America effective January 1, 2002, when the company was established through the merger of Hydro Aluminum Metal Products with Hydro Aluminum Wells. Previously he served as senior vice president, Corporate Strategy for Norsk Hydro.
