Environmentally efficient production

Both extrusion presses utilise the latest manufacturing software to minimise production waste - whilst maximising the efficient use of aluminium billets. 100% of the waste aluminium from the extrusion process is captured and then recycled into aluminium billets for future production and as a result, up to 30% of the aluminium used in our profiles is extruded from recycled billets.

Heat generated during the extrusion process is also recycled through the aging furnaces - which are used to pre-heat the extrusion dies - significantly reducing the power requirements of the equipment.
