     Pechiney Consolidates its Position as Preferred Supplier for Aerospace

Paris, June 19, 2003 - The Pechiney Group, which is present at the Paris Air
Show through its Aerospace, Transport & Industry Division, recently implemented
an original process to consolidate its position as a benchmark supplier for the
aerospace industry.

A new, more international and more customer-focused sales organization has been
set up.
R&D expenditure ($100 million since 1995, of which 50% to develop new alloys)
increases constantly. In addition, our "R&D Accelerators" action results in more
upstream cooperation with customers and reduces time to market. In
manufacturing, significant capital expenditure has enabled the Group to increase
its production capacity and offer very wide products (over 32 meters) for new
programs such as the Airbus A380.
New services have been successfully offered to major customers, including
pre-cut and surfaced products, a turnings recycling center and end-to-end supply
chain management. Finally, through its "Declic" program, Pechiney has set up the
resources needed to become the industry benchmark in terms of schedule
reliability and supply chain management.

All these new projects were launched in the framework of the Pechiney Continuous
Improvement System and are supported by an ambitious performance improvement
program in the Group's plants.

Pierre Vareille, Pechiney Aluminum Conversion Sector President and Aerospace,
Transport & Industry Division Executive Vice-President, stated, "Aluminum has
unique advantages and remains aircraft manufacturers' first-choice material. The
market launch of new alloys, higher aluminum tonnage in the most modern
aircraft, together with recent progress in machining, will consolidate
aluminum's leadership in this industry.  Thanks to several decades of experience
and the extension of its offering with new services, Pechiney is no longer a raw
materials suppliers but a provider of solutions. The Group now has a unique
position in this high-tech market. Our  ambition is to enable manufacturers to
make cheaper, higher-performing aircraft and, in this way, contribute to the
long-term growth of the aerospace market."

The Aerospace, Transport & Industry (ATI) Division is comprised of production of
rolled aluminum plate for air, land and sea transport (excluding automotive) and
industry, as well as production of hard alloy extrusions. ATI is the joint world
leader in heavy-gauge plate and profiles for aerospace and has significant
positions with all aircraft makers, particularly Airbus and Boeing. In 2002, the
Division achieved turnover of (euro)973 million and sales of 281,000 metric
tons. It employs 3,600 people on 8 production sites, of which 4 in France, 3 in
the United States and 1 in the United Kingdom.

ATI belongs to Pechiney's Aluminum Conversion Sector, which achieved sales of
(euro)2.6 billion in 2002. With presence in 6 countries, it employs
approximately 8,000 people on 25 production sites.

Pechiney is an international group listed on the Paris and New York stock
exchanges. Its three core businesses are primary aluminum, aluminium conversion
and packaging. Pechiney achieved sales of (euro)11.9 billion in 2002. It employs
34,000 employees.
