Wayne’s expert knowledge of metal forming has played a major role in helping AIL develop new structural plate products over the years. Most recently, he has been instrumental in helping us produce our first project with Ultra•Cor, the world’s strongest structural steel plate. Wayne’s son, Anthony Chappell, also works with AIL as a machine operator and is carrying on the family tradition.

Reached at his Dorchester office, Kenzie MacPherson commented: “AIL has been a big part of our local economy since it was founded, in 1965, and we have grown to become a major global player. It’s been talented and dedicated people like Wayne Chappell that have made the difference.”
