Alcoa (NYSE:AA) has once again been named the most admired metals company in the world by Fortune magazine. This is the fourth year in a row that Alcoa has been awarded the top position in the Metals category in the magazine's annual ranking on corporate reputation. Alcoa has been on Fortune's Most Admired List since the publication began its annual ranking more than 30 years ago.
Alcoa received top scores in the following key attributes: use of corporate assets, financial soundness, long-term investment value, quality of products and services, and global competitiveness.
"Fortune’s recognition is a tribute to our 59,000 employees who, through their tireless pursuit of excellence, innovative products and strong customer focus, have made Alcoa the top metals company for four consecutive years," said Alcoa Chairman and Chief Executive Officer Klaus Kleinfeld. "It is also extremely gratifying to be named the world’s most admired metals company as we aggressively transform Alcoa, building our innovative value-add portfolio for greater profitable growth, while creating a globally competitive commodity business."
The Most Admired ranking is based on surveys of executives, directors and analysts, who rate companies in their own industry.
The complete list of the World's Most Admired Companies and related articles will appear in Fortune's March issue, which will be on newsstands starting February 23.
