July 21, 2010 – Quanex Building Products Corporation has announced that August (Gus) J. Coppola, 61, was promoted to Senior Vice President of Quanex Building Products, reporting to David D. Petratis, chairman and chief executive officer. Coppola was formerly the president of the company’s Truseal business. In his new role, Coppola’s key responsibility will be to serve as the champion of Quanex’s Project Nexus initiative.

Project Nexus is a sales growth initiative formally launched by Quanex earlier this year. The initiative calls for the integration of its Engineered Products Group (EPG) sales, marketing and product development teams. Coppola and his EPG team will be focused on customer needs, both now and in the future. While the brands of Mikron, Homeshield and Truseal have served their individual customer bases and are expected to continue to do so, the combined talent of the EPG team will be bringing more product solutions to current customers while reaching out to new customers.

“Gus brings the essential experience, background and management philosophy necessary to champion this strategic initiative,” said Petratis. “I believe Gus’ energy, years of experience in the industry and management skills suit our needs perfectly. Reporting to Gus will be all of EPG’s sales and marketing personnel. With Gus as our champion, I am confident that he and his new team are up to the task of driving profitable sales.”

The company also announced that David Marlar was promoted to General Manager – Truseal, and he will assume most of Coppola’s former responsibilities. Pete Donoghue was also promoted to Vice President Sales – EPG. Donoghue will be working with Coppola to further refine the structure of the EPG sales and marketing organization. With a team of more than 30 sales and marketing professionals, the Quanex Engineered Products Group will bring added sales and marketing punch to the already successful Homeshield, Mikron and Truseal brands.
