Work Culture

We strive to integrate a healthy work culture that weaves together the best attributes of all the people who work at AAC.

With more than 7 countries represented, we are proud to have employees that represent the best that these countries have to offer.

We are also sensitive to the Japanese culture from our parent company. We have decorated a portion of our
lobby area in the Japanese
style to bring a bit of that culture to our plant here
in KY.

As an extension of our work culture, we participate in and contribute to a variety of communty programs:

 

Education
We are committed to the education of people of all ages.  AAC has donated money and resources to:  Hunter Hills Family Resource Center, HS Cheerleading, Leadership Tri-County, Girls Softball and Soccer, Student Nurses Assoc., Laurel Co. Adult Education, and many local Schools for special projects.

Civic & Community
We help make a difference by supporting social services and health causes.  AAC has supported:  The Bennett Center, Girl & Boy Scouts, American Cancer Society, Special Olympics, Multiple Sclerosis, Children’s Miracle Network, The Optimist Club, MDA, Laurel Co. Fair, London Rescue Squad, World Chicken Festival, and the NIBROC Festival.

Arts & Culture
We believe in the support of arts & culture programs for children.  We accomplish this through such projects as:  Clay Co. HS Rodeo Club, Trooper Island State Police, Scott Rose Foundation, and annual sponsor of the Fine Arts Assoc.

Environment
AAC believes in promoting environmentally sustainable practices.  Primary areas of focus include the conservation of water and energy and the reduction of landfills. 

Recently we changed our die cast cooling processes from water quenching to air cooling. We have also reduced our waste to landfill by 69% through recycling programs of cardboard and paper.  We regularly inspect the area around our facility for litter pickup, and we support educational efforts to encourage litter prevention. Our annual usage of 38,000,000 pounds of raw material comes from 100% recycled aluminum and we request that every supplier work towards becoming more environmentally friendly through ISO-14001 certification.
