American manganese alloy production facility.
Burdette, who had been with
Eramet for 16 years, will "maintain a connection with us in an
advisory role for a period of time," Willoughby told

numerous positions before he took over as president, and we
hope to continue to rely on his expertise as I transition into
this new position and the organization does as well."
