Perfectus Aluminum Inc. Responds to Trade Group19.10.2017 13:00 | Pressemelding
ONTARIO, Calif., Oct. 19, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Perfectus Aluminum Inc. has issued the following: On October 12, 2017 the Aluminum Extruders Council (AEC), an industry group representing largely American aluminum extruders, posted to its blog a false narrative regarding a suit to which Perfectus Aluminum Inc. is a related party.

In addition to the hypocrisy of the AEC's promotion of this case, its s
