We believe that it is crucial to find different ways to get as many people as possible interested in aluminium. In fiscal 2017 we launched an educational website about aluminium* containing easy-to-understand explanations and illustrations with an eye to getting people of all ages interested in aluminium and helping them gain a better understanding about the metal.
The website has garnered a lot of attention since it hit the internet. We have received inquiries from parents and teachers of elementary school-age children, people with whom we never had direct contact before. We were also asked to be interviewed by a TV producer and the editor of a newsletter for union employees of a major company. *Visit Toyo Aluminium’s corporate website to explore its educational site on aluminium.
