ALPOLIC Announces Patterson Promotion

May 15, 2023

(Chesapeake, VA) May 15, 2023– Mitsubishi Chemical America’s ALPOLIC Division, a leader in metal composite materials (MCM) manufacturing, is proud to announce the promotion of Chad Patterson to Architectural Regional Sales Manager for the South-Central United States.

Patterson joined ALPOLIC’s sales team as a senior sales representative in 2022 and since then has become an integral part of the division’s success in the region. His years of prior experience within the architectural, engineering and construction industry made him an ideal choice for ALPOLIC and have allowed him to advance quickly.

“Chad got to work with the now retired industry veteran, Tom Ratway, and was able to build on his already extensive knowledge about MCM manufacturing, fabrication and installation,” said Dave Kearney, ALPOLIC’s director of sales and customer service. “It was a good fit from the start, and we are excited about the impact he will have on his region and our business as a whole.”

Prior to joining ALPOLIC, Patterson had worked extensively with premier companies who utilize MCM and as such is skilled in customer support, especially in the areas of estimating, installation, field measurement and drafting.

“I’m grateful to have found a home within the Mitsubishi Chemical Group of companies, and I look forward to continuing to strengthen my relationship with customers in my region,” said Patterson. “The transition to ALPOLIC was a natural one and it’s allowed me to expand my skill set so I can truly be a resource on projects from start to finish.”
