Alcoa, Earle M. Jorgensen Company and Hoyt USA Score Bull's Eye in Athens

CRESSONA, Pa.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Sept. 22, 2004--Alcoa (NYSE:AA) announced today that it congratulates archers Marco Galiazzo, 2004 Olympic gold medallist - Italy, Tim Cuddihy, Olympic bronze medallist - Australia, and Alison Williamson, 2004 Olympic bronze medallist - Great Britain for their success in Athens.

Alcoa is proud that its Alcoa Engineered Products (AEP) business provided the extruded aluminum for the Hoyt USA metal archery bows used by these archers.

The AEP plant in Spanish Fork, Utah has a contract to supply aluminum extrusions to Earle M. Jorgensen Company (EMJ), which supplies the extrusions to Hoyt USA for manufacturing several varieties of bows. EMJ recently renewed the contract to AEP that runs through February 2006.

Nearly 65% of male and female archers who participated in the archery events in Athens used Hoyt bows. The archery competition in the 2004 Olympic Games took place at the Panathinaiko Stadium, where the first modern Olympic Games were held in 1896. The Panathinaiko Stadium is built at the site of the ancient stadium dating from 329 B.C.

"It was especially meaningful for Alcoa Engineered Products to have provided the aluminum for the bows used by archers in this historic stadium in the country where the Olympics were born," said Brent M. Johnson, general manager of the AEP Spanish Fork facility.
