GLENVIEW, Ill. — The Metal Construction Association has added three new members. Alucoil North America of Manning, S.C.; Hill Architectural Systems of Franklin Park, Ill.; and NorthClad Rainscreen Systems of Everett, Wash. have joined the ranks of the approximately 80 member companies with specialties in the metal construction industry. 
Alucoil North America manufactures aluminum composite panels (ACM) for building and construction applications such as wall cladding, signage, and corporate imaging design. It is part of the Alucoil S.A. business group, based in Miranda de Ebro, Spain, a manufacturer of high-tech aluminum products for building and construction, transportation and industrial applications.
“What appealed to us (about joining MCA), as a newer domestic manufacturer of an established product, was the fact that we would be able to immediately become involved in important decisions affecting our industry, our products, and our customers,” Samuel Chastain, vice president and general manager for Alucoil, said.  
Hill Architectural Systems, a new division of The Hill Group, offers design, installation and fabrication of metal enclosures for buildings such as exterior metal panels, louvers, curtain wall systems and custom metal roofs. 
“Hill Architectural Systems looks forward to our membership with the MCA,” Ryan Stojkovich, vice president of business development, said. “This national peer group setting is a terrific way for our newly formed division at The Hill Group to collaborate with other leading companies in the metal industry.”
NorthClad Rainscreen Solutions is a division of Northshore Sheet Metal and provides engineered exterior wall cladding systems in a variety of color, material, and finish options and are designed for simple, straight forward utilization.
“We felt that joining MCA would give us an excellent chance to support the industry and network with top senior level industry people,” Dave Killian, general manager of Northclad, said. “We are looking forward to staying informed about NFPA 285.”
MCA’s next meeting is the 2013 Semi-Annual Meeting, June 24-26, 2013 at The Umstead in Raleigh, N.C. For more information, visit
