The seven founding members, which also included Alcan, Arcelor, Solvay and the paper group UPM, signed its statutes at the French Industry Ministry, in the presence of industry minister Franç ois Loos. The founding members are mandated to act also in their name to buy user rights to power plants and negotiate drawing rights with the banks, so long as each company signs a contract for power supplies starting at the same date and for the same length of time.
