Aluminium International Today September/October 2016

Spot the difference

The eagle-eyed among you might have already spotted a slight change in this issue of the magazine... 

On paper it is not a big change, but I will certainly have to get used to spelling my new surname ‘Bloxsome’ straight after I have said it!

My new Husband and I got married in a beautiful ceremony on a clifftop in Santorini. He thought I picked the location so that he didn’t have an easy escape route, but I assured him it was for the sunset!

I am writing this after trawling through emails and trying to catch up on what I might have missed while my phone remained off.

It’s not often we get time to switch ourselves off, but it’s important from time to time and means I feel refreshed and ready for the busy times ahead.

Hopefully you are reading this issue at one of the many industry events taking place across the next few months.

It is likely that myself or other members of the AIT team will also be in attendance, so don’t hesitate to hunt us down if you’d like to know more about the magazine or if you’d like to be involved in 2017. We have lots of exciting new supplements and digital issues planned, meaning even more opportunities to promote your company or products to the international aluminium industry.

Back to this issue and as usual we have squeezed in as much industry news, regional updates, technical features and product innovation as possible.

I hope you enjoy the issue!
