Alumil N.A., a subsidiary of Europe-based Alumil Aluminum, has established a new North American business unit, and the company has tapped industry veteran Steven Acker to take its reins.

According to Acker, Alumil N.A.’s new director of business development, the business unit will focus on supplying the North American market with Alumil’s standard aluminum systems.

“Specifically, this unit will be focusing on projects that do not require the individualized engineering support typically required on large scale projects,” Acker told™. “Our off-the-shelf product offering will include Alumil’s premium curtainwall, sliding doors, hinged doors and windows that are noted for superior thermal performance.”

Acker will be based out of the company’s New York City office and brings more than 25 years of experience in the glass and aluminum industry.

“I am thrilled to lead the North American sales and marketing efforts for Alumil N.A.,” he says. “I look forward to being an integral part of one of the largest aluminum extrusion groups in Southeast Europe. We will be offering premium European products that are noted for high quality and superior thermal performance such as the products we are currently supplying for Google’s New York City headquarters in Chelsea.”

Before earning a LMAC degree from Ohio State University, Fischer School of Business, Acker graduated from Hofstra University with a bachelor’s of business administration degree in marketing.
