Bonnell Aluminum Achieves IATF 16949:2016 Certification


Bonnell Aluminum, a subsidiary of Tredegar Corporation (NYSE:TG), is
pleased to announce that its aluminum extrusion manufacturing facility
in Newnan GA, has achieved certification under IATF 16949:2016, a
technical specification for quality management systems in the automotive
sector, as set forth by the International Automotive Task Force (IATF).

Replacing the previous ISO/TS 16949 technical specification, the IATF
16949:2016 combines various standards from across the United States and
Europe. It outlines rigorous requirements to the supplier's Quality
Management System (QMS), including continuous improvement, defect
identification and prevention, reduction of variation and waste. This
international measure of quality is the gold standard for any company to
develop a system for ensuring improvement and customer satisfaction.

"Achieving this Quality Management System standard is a major
accomplishment for our employees and company as a whole," said Robert
Gregory, Plant Manager. "Our commitment and dedication to excellence and
quality through continuous improvement enables us to meet and exceed
automotive quality standard requirements."

Brook Hamilton, President of Bonnell Aluminum, said, "This certification
marks another major milestone for our company and will further enhance
Bonnell Aluminum's position as an industry leader and supplier of
aluminum extrusions to the automotive market."
