CHICAGO — Alcoa Inc. president and chief executive officer Klaus Kleinfeld has been picked by President Obama to serve on the President’s Advanced Manufacturing Partnership Steering Committee 2.0.

Kleinfeld aims to build on work done by the first committee, which was created in 2011 and made recommendations for investing in advanced manufacturing in the United States, the Pittsburgh-based aluminum producer said Sept. 26.

The first committee recommended establishing a national network of innovation institutes, Alcoa said. The company said it supported the pilot institute in Youngstown, Ohio, which developed 3-D printing.

Also named to the committee were United Steelworkers union president Leo W. Gerard, Caterpillar Inc. chairman and chief executive officer Douglas Oberhelman, and Northrop Grumman Corp. president and chief executive officer Wes Bush, according to the committee’s website.
