Turkish exec to head global aluminum initiative
Göksal Güngör, the general manager of Turkey’s Assan Alüminyum, has been elected as the new president of the Global Aluminum Foil Roller Initiative (GLAFRI), a global association providing worldwide foil market information to members and coordinating actions on sustainability in order to support foil market growth and promote innovative foil developments.
GLAFRI is supported by about 60 companies worldwide, including foil roller members from more than 25 nations who represent about 50 percent of the global foil production, according to data from the initiative’s website.
Güngör, who was born in 1973, previously served as one of the vice presidents of the initiative since 2016, according a press release from Assan on Feb. 7.
His election followed Oliver Hommel stepping down from his role, as he left the aluminum foil industry. Since 1999, Güngör has worked at Kibar Holding, which owns Assan Alüminyum. He was appointed general manager of the company in July 2016.
