Re: What's your "day" job?
I am a team leader (foreman) in an aluminum extrusions plant. Our core business is architectual shapes and curtain wall door and window systems. Typically doors and windows you see in any restaurant, Wal-mart, or High rise building. We do lots of school windows too. We melt aluminum scrap/prime, then cast into logs and billets to use in our extrusion presses. We also anodize, paint and thermally improve (my department) the window/door frames as requested by the customer.
We extrude a whole bunch of different stuff but mostly window sections.
